Cincinnati Bar Foundation

Recent Grant Recipients

October kicks off the Cincinnati Bar Foundation’s Annual Appeal, with the Investing for Justice 2016 Campaign.  Last year, through your gifts made during the campaign, $90,000 in grants were distributed that directly impacted thousands of people in our community.  And with your help, we were able to fully endow the Michael H. Neumark CALL Scholarship Fund. This year, not only do we want to increase our impact on the community by making larger grants, we want to fully endow these two major programs that support the Bar:

  • Mental Health Initiative
  • Mock Trial

Your gift of $100 or more enables us to help a larger number of people and organizations in our community. Investing for Justice 2016 reflects our goal to raise significantly more money to have a bigger and ongoing impact. It also shows that our profession is vital to our community. Through your support, we provided grants

to help at-risk children with

  • Northern KY Children’s Law Center Inc. — Youth Lives Matter
  • Pro Kids — Launch Program Talbert House — Helping Fathers Navigate Legal Waters

to help disadvantaged citizens with

  • Interact for Health — Funder’s Response to the Heroin Epidemic

Your gifts will also allow the CBF to endow projects that members of the Cincinnati Bar Association count on. Your generosity has already provided over half of the funding. So, we only need to raise $153,634 to fully endow:

  • Mental Health Initiative
  • Ohio High School Mock Trial

The cause for investing in our profession and the community needs you. This is your opportunity to join in. Your support for the Investing for Justice 2016 Campaign allows us to pay it forward for Greater Cincinnati. Please join with the other members of the Association who have already pledged their support, and make your tax deductible contribution now.
