Join the Movement and Give Back to the Maryland Bar Foundation

Invest in justice and support your community by contributing to the Maryland Bar Foundation. As the philanthropic arm of the Maryland State Bar Association, we award grants that support many local nonprofit organizations in their efforts to provide public education as it relates to the legal field, offer legal services to vulnerable community members, and recognize luminaries in the legal profession through our fellowship program. MBF supports many ventures, including the Association for the Public Defender of Maryland, The Anne Arundel Conflict Resolution Center, Inc, Maryland Crime Victims’ Resource Center, Tahirih Justice Center, Conflict Resolution Center of Baltimore County, and The Women’s Law Center of Maryland. As we approach the close of the Fall grant cycle, we are overwhelmed by the number and volume of grant requests. Each year, the Foundation receives an average of $236,000 in grant requests. Nearly every request seeks funding for a worthy and valuable cause. Without further assistance, we are unable to fulfill almost ⅔ of these requests.

With your help, we can achieve our 2023-2024 goal to increase our funding capabilities and provide more support to community organizations and local nonprofits.

In celebration of the season of giving, we ask for your support and assistance through a one-time donation to the Maryland Bar Foundation. Your crucial contribution will go a long way in funding more grant requests and ultimately serving Maryland communities.

Donating to the Maryland Bar Foundation makes a significant, tangible difference in our communities and the profession.


Every year, MBF donors fund initiatives that:


Expand access to legal services


Assist vulnerable communities


Educate attorneys

Your support makes you a part of a legacy of impact and meaningful change.
