Giving Thanks

We Thank YOU This Season!

Our Bar Foundation is ever-grateful for the support provided by donors, volunteers and partners who help serve so many in our community. Together, we are able to leverage your gifts of time, talent and treasure to change lives, one person at a time. With your support, the programs funded by the Bar Foundation have made a big impact in 2017-2018.
 

We positively impacted the lives of 4,843 people in our community through the service of 1,082 volunteer lawyers who gave 16,174 volunteer hours valued at over $2,425,000. 

Our programs served:
3,000 Cleveland and East Cleveland city school students and graduates,

585 homeless, low income and at risk individuals in shelters, at social service centers and in pro se clinics,
