You Can Help!

The Greater Richmond Bar Foundation provides direct legal support to nonprofit organizations, supports local legal aid organizations and works to increase the efficiency and impact of pro bono service delivery.  With a relatively small budget, we maximize our ability to improve public access to the justice system through volunteer efforts, our community partners, and highly-motivated staff.  We pride ourselves on efficient use of resources, minimizing overhead, and leveraging in-kind services.  However, we do need YOUR support to keep the Pro Bono Clearinghouse open to nonprofits needing legal assistance, to keep initiatives like our Pro Bono Promise and JusticeServer moving forward, and to address the growing unmet legal needs of our community.  Together, we can continue to achieve our mission of increased access to justice. The GRBF is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, and all contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law. A financial statement is available upon written request from the Office of Charitable and Regulatory Programs
