CMBF - Support

The Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Foundation strives to cultivate philanthropic support from our constituents to advance the mission and reach both short and long-term goals. Gifts can be made to support daily operations, capital improvements, endowment and special projects. The CBF is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization and gifts are tax deductible. Please consider the Foundation when making charitable donations, memorial contributions or honorary donations in tribute to colleagues. These gifts will help us continue our proud tradition of supporting public service initiatives in the Greater Cleveland community.

Individual lawyers and friends of the legal community are invited to join the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Foundation Fellows to help secure the future of our Justice For All programs. Foundation Fellows pledge $250 per year for ten years, or pledge to pay in a lump sum of $2,350. Fellows are given the opportunity to continue with their charitable giving after completing their original pledges by becoming Gold Fellows with a gift of $10,000.

Annual Fund
Unrestricted Annual Fund gifts are particularly valuable because they can be allocated to the area of greatest need in the current fiscal year. You can play a vital role in helping us meet the needs of those we support by making a contribution to the Foundation's Annual Fund.
