BFF 2012 Reaches $300,000 Goal!


The Mecklenburg Bar Foundation would again like to take this opportunity to say "THANK YOU" to the 700+ firms and individuals that helped us reach our goal of $300,000 for the 2012 Bar Foundation Fund campaign! In these tough economic times, many non-profits saw a decrease in both the number of donors and the number of dollars, but MBF's BFF campaign actually saw increases in both! So thanks to all those that supported the Foundation in 2012. We hope that you, along with some new faces, will join us again in 2013!


See the list of generous individuals and firms that made the 2012 campaign so successful. We can't thank you enough!
