The purposes of the NCBA Foundation Endowment are:

  • To build respect for and understanding of the law;
  • To support the delivery of legal services to eligible indigent communities;
  • To support legally related community service projects;
  • To study, improve and facilitate the administration of justice; and
  • To enhance the professional competence of lawyers.

Semi-annual grants assist dozens of statewide bar and legally related service/educational projects of many bar-affiliated non-profit organizations. The Endowment is the philanthropic workhorse of the NCBA Foundation and the NCBA. Since 1988, 596 endowment grants totaling more than $4.7 million have been awarded.
