Bar Foundation Fund
Bar Foundation Fund 2013 is on a Roll!
After reaching our $300,000 goal in 2012, the Mecklenburg Bar Foundation will strive to raise $300,000 again in 2013 and we're happy to report that we're off to a great start, with more than $81,000 raised so far.
Gifts made to the Lawyers' Impact Fund (previously called the unrestricted fund) are the lifeblood of the Mecklenburg Bar Foundation. These gifts enable MBF to award grants to support projects and organizations that serve those in need in our community, including Council for Children's Rights, International House, Larry King's Clubhouse, NC LEAF, and Legal Services of Southern Piedmont to name a few.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of attorneys, law firms, legal departments, and corporations in Mecklenburg County, MBF raised more than$145,000 for the 2012 Lawyers' Impact Fund and used the dollars raised to award more than $119,000 in grants in the first quarter of 2013.
