Recent Grant Recipients

Looking for a high rate of return in your investment?  Then consider making a gift to the Cincinnati Bar Foundation.  October kicks off our Annual Appeal, with the Investing for Justice 2017 Campaign.  Last year, through your gifts made during the campaign, over $116,000 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. Where else do you get that kind of bang for your buck?
