About the Foundation and its Mission
The Austin Bar Foundation was established in 2003 to support and expand the provision of legal-related charitable and educational programs and services in Central Texas. The charitable arm of the Austin Bar Association, the Foundation works to improve public awareness of the legal system, the administration of justice, and the delivery of legal services. Through generous tax-deductible donations raised through the Foundation’s Fellows, Life Fellows, and Sustaining Fellows programs and the annual Austin Bar Foundation Gala, the Foundation supports legal services to low-income Texans, legal education programs, and assistance to lawyers in need.
In 2012, the Foundation began its grant program, providing funding to area organizations for law-related projects. To date, the Foundation has presented over $168,600 in grants. CLICK HERE for information on past grant recipients and to learn how to apply for a grant.
