• To foster and maintain the honor and integrity of the profession of the law,
• To improve and to facilitate the administration of justice, and
• To promote the study of the law and law research, and sharing legal knowledge.
Since 1965, we’ve pursued our mission by making grants to organizations that work within Maryland to accomplish the goals of the Foundation and by presenting awards to honor distinguished leaders in the legal community. Our mission is supported by contributions from Bar Foundation Fellows, MSBA members, and the general public.

Every year, the Maryland Bar Foundation provides thousands of dollars in grants to Maryland nonprofits and charities to serve our communities and promote justice.
