Boston Bar Foundation Launches Drive for 5 Initiative

Boston Bar Foundation

Over the summer the Boston Bar Foundation launched the Drive for 5 Initiative in an effort to reach the $5 million endowment goal set seven years ago. A $5 million endowment will create a permanent base of support for the BBF, providing increased flexibility to support programs and projects that fulfill our mission: to fund and promote innovation in legal services; to enhance access to justice for the underserved; and to support the public service and pro bono work of the Boston Bar Association.

The BBF Society of Fellows program is vital in helping us achieve this goal. 100% of pledges and gifts made by members of the Society of Fellows go towards the endowment, making a long-lasting gift to sustain critical access to justice and public service work in our community for years to come. Thanks to the remarkable generosity of the nearly 500 current members of the Fellows, we are $370,000 and counting towards our $5 million goal. If you are interested in joining this dedicated group of donors and helping us to support these life-changing services, please contact Erica Southerland at 617-778-1930. If you are already a member of the Society, consider increasing your yearly payment to help us reach out goal. Not sure how much is left on your pledge? Contact Erica.

Thank you to the current members of the Society of Fellows.
