Founded in 1970, the Beverly Hills Bar Foundation is an IRC 501(c)(3) public entity and the charitable affiliate of the Beverly Hills Bar Association, receiving generous financial and volunteer support from Association members and friends.
The Foundation has enriched the legal profession by encouraging and supporting its alumni of prominent recipients of law school scholarships. The Foundation is proud that many of its scholarship recipients have distinguished themselves as prominent lawyers, judges, legislators and community leaders.
The Foundation has enhanced the community by funding a number of nationally recognized and emulated legal literacy and preventive law programs as well as community service projects that educate and assist youth, adults and seniors. The Foundation is also proud of its efforts in co-founding of Public Counsel, conceived by the Beverly Hills Bar Association more than 40 years ago and now the nation’s largest pro bono law firm. The Foundation, the Association, and Public Counsel share a deep commitment to helping others through volunteer service, a cornerstone of the Foundation’s tradition of excellence.
