Justice Fund

Justice Funds: Honoring the Great Lawyers of North Carolina

Justice Funds honor North Carolina lawyers, past and present, whose careers have shown dedication to the pursuit of justice and outstanding service to the profession and to the public.

A Justice Fund is a named endowment and may be established in recognition of an attorney with a gift of $45,000 by one or more contributors (a group of attorneys, associates and family members). Restricted Justice Funds earmarked for specific new projects may be created with a minimum gift of $100,000 to the Endowment.

North Carolina lawyers honored by the creators of a Justice Fund receive special recognition in the form of a permanent, copper-etched plaque and biographical sketch maintained at the North Carolina Bar Center in Cary, North Carolina.

If you would like to talk to someone about establishing a Justice Fund, please contact Tom Hull at 1.800.662.7407 or thull@ncbar.org.

The NCBA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and all contributions are tax deductible.
