The Allegheny County Bar Foundation (ACBF) was established by the Allegheny County Bar Association (ACBA) in 1980 to conduct a broad range of educational and charitable activities related to the law. The mission of the Allegheny County Bar Foundation is to be a driving force in promoting justice for all and to improve the community through public service law-related programs. To fulfill this mission, the Foundation raises, manages and distributes funds; encourages and assists lawyers to provide pro bono legal services; and develops and supports public information initiatives in Allegheny County.
