Donate to the Investing for Justice Campaign >

Contributions to the Investing for Justice Campaign each year assist the Foundation’s efforts to enhance the image of the legal profession and promote justice in the Greater Cincinnati community. Seed money and grants by the Foundation are made twice a year and are concentrated in education and training programs to help lawyers improve themselves and their careers; legal education, assistance programs and justice initiatives for our community; and projects which improve the image of the legal profession.
