Who We Are
& What We Do
CHARITABLE ARM OF THE JCBA
In 1988 leaders of the Johnson County Bar Association started a project to develop a charitable branch of the JCBA. Their work led to the development of the Johnson County Bar Foundation - a 501(c)(3) charity. The mission of the Foundation is to provide support for charities with a connection to the legal community.
The Foundation started with meetings attended by just a few members, but there are now over 400 members with some 200 having become Fellows of the Bar Foundation by completing significant financial pledges. There are 24 members on the Foundation's Board of Trustees who represent lawyers in our community. The Foundation has provided assistance to many charities serving children and families and has provided opportunities for attorneys who want to give back to the community.
