Endowment fund

Building Bridges logoIn May 1996, the board of trustees created the Allegheny County Bar Foundation Permanently Restricted Endowment Fund in order to aid the foundation in carrying out its philanthropic mission. Until 2005, contributions to the endowment were limited primarily to Fellows pledges.

On Sept. 21, 2005, the foundation launched the “Building Bridges to the Future” campaign in response to funding cutbacks affecting legal service organizations. Through this new initiative, the bar foundation made a commitment to build the endowment to at least $1,000,000 by 2010.

Through the generosity of firms, Patron Fellows, and individual donors, the Endowment has reached over $1 million. A strong Endowment will enable the foundation to award additional and/or larger grants to legal service agencies, and to expand its pro bono efforts and educational services to the community.

The success of the Endowment Campaign would not be possible without the generous support of the legal community.
