In 1951, a handful of visionary leaders of the Illinois State Bar Association recognized the need for a statewide charitable and philanthropic organization and founded the Illinois Bar Foundation. Their initial commitment was to provide aid to deserving members of the Illinois bar who, because of age or infirmity, could no longer provide for their own care or support. The Foundation has since expanded its scope to ensure meaningful access to the justice system for all, especially for those with limited means.
Our vision is to be the statewide leader in advancing equal justice with four key objectives: enhance the availability of legal aid to those of limited means, encourage pro bono work, educate Illinois residents regarding their rights and responsibilities under the law, and extend assistance to colleagues in need of support.
