Do you know a local non-profit group that does good work and needs funding?

The Louisville Bar Foundation accepts grant applications for projects that fulfill one or more of the following objectives:

  • Projects that improve access to the legal system by persons of limited financial means, and if possible, produce a tangible product that can be distributed to the public;
  • Projects that promote better access to legal information and improved perception of the justice system by minorities;
  • Projects that improve the operation of, and public confidence in, the Jefferson County courts;
  • Projects that provide public education about our legal system and promote a positive image of the legal profession. 

The LBF will distribute approximately $130,000 in grants during 2017.  The typical grant has been in the $2,500 to $12,000 range in recent years.  Funds will not be awarded for tickets or sponsorships of special events, for capital construction or endowment campaigns.
