Earlier this year, the West Virginia Bar Foundation provided a grant to Seven Stories Theater Company in Fairmont to make educational presentations to school students in several counties regarding anti-bullying matters. This new endeavor was highly recommended by school administrators and officials as an effective means to deal with bullying activities that affect both girls and boys.
Pictured above is Joey Madia, the Director of the program, as he talks with students at Rivesville School concerning bullying prevention. Hundreds of students have and will participate in these anti-bullying sessions
in the counties in the north central part of West Virginia during the current school year.
This grant is another opportunity for the Bar Foundation to support programs and activities that improve the administration of justice in our state.


The Bullying Prevention program, mentioned above, is just one example of the significant programs and services that are supported by WV Bar Foundation grants which the Board of Directors distributes from the charitable donations that are received each year.
Past grants have been awarded for student scholarships and legal programs at the WVU College of Law, civic education programs such as WV Law Adventure and We, the People, and child abuse and neglect prevention endeavors as provided by ChildLaw and local child advocacy centers.
Please consider making a tax deductible contribution to the WV Bar Foundation so that the Board of Directors can increase its strong commitment to assisting those activities in the state that improve the administration of justice and the provision of legal services.
You can easily make donations electronically on the Bar Foundation’s homepage on the new website—  —-or send a check to WV Bar Foundation, P. O. Box 4845, Charleston, WV 25364.
Do it before December 31, 2012.
Thank You for your valuable consideration!


The West Virginia Bar Foundation and its Board of Directors hope that each of you and all your friends and family members are enjoying the wonderful holiday season!
We wish you the very best in all your endeavors and look forward to you having the best year ever in 2013!!
