We invite you to explore this site and learn more about the SLBF and how we utilize donated funds to support other groups in our community and their worthwhile programs.
These include programs that assist citizens in utilizing the law to solve problems, as well as youth education programs that demonstrate how the law operates and how it directly affects young people’s lives. We have also encouraged young people to consider law as a career, and we grant direct scholarship assistance toward study at the law schools in our surrounding area. You will also find links that allow you to view those lawyers who contribute their time to the mission of the Bar Foundation by serving on its Board of Directors and to read about the programs currently receiving grants from us. Finally (and importantly), we hope you can consider assisting SLBF both financially and otherwise.
In order to make this special night and our other great works of the Foundation possible, we rely on the generosity of sponsors for support. Our goal this year is $50,000. Currently we over a 1/3 of the way to our goal with $17,000 raised! To view sponsorship opportunities click here.
Thank you to all the volunteers and everyone who participated this year! We can hardly show our appreciation and thanks for all that you do!
