Over fifty years ago, a handful of visionary leaders 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. Since then, the Foundation has expanded its scope to ensure meaningful access to the justice system, especially for those with limited means, and to assist lawyers who can no longer support themselves due to incapacity. With the Vision to be the statewide leader in advancing equal justice, the Foundation has established the following organizational objectives:
 

  • Enhance the availability of legal aid to those of limited means.

  • Encourage pro-bono legal work.

  • Educate Illinois residents regarding their rights and responsibilities under the law.

  • Extend assistance to colleagues in need of support.
