Planned Gifts

The Cincinnati Bar and our professional community are an important part of our lives. Being part of this community not only brings lifelong friendships and connections, but a commitment to upholding the ideals of professional integrity and public service.

Established in 1961, the Cincinnati Bar Foundation does just that. The Foundation is dedicated to promoting justice and changing lives through the law, through annual grants awarded to fund educational and charitable programs supporting the legal profession and the justice system in our community.

You can support these efforts as a member of The Legacy for Justice Society. By including the Foundation in your planned giving, you help ensure the future of our organization. A gift to the Foundation carries your professional legacy into the future. Become a member today.

Society members will be recognized in:
  • A permanent display at the Cincinnati Bar Center
  • The CBA Directory
  • Online at cincybar.org
Donors may also remain anonymous.

Why become a Society member?

To ensure the Foundation can continue to promote justice and support
