Welcome from our President

Dear Friends,

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Pennsylvania Bar Foundation website. The Foundation was created in response to the Pennsylvania Bar Association's desire to become more involved in public service. We work to improve the public's understanding of the law and our judicial system. We also strive to ensure that citizens have full and equal access to justice through our legal system regardless of their ability to pay.

As you navigate this site you will learn about all the possibilities and opportunities provided to you by your Foundation. I would specifically direct you to the various awards and scholarships provided by your Foundation. I am sure there is one to meet your needs. If not, let’s work together to create new opportunities.

I would also specifically direct you to our designated giving levels and I personally challenge you or your firm to become a Commonwealth or even Keystone Society level donor.

Thanks for your support! Your Foundation is here to serve you.

Lawrence B. Mansfield, President
