Foundation / Corporation
Illinois Bar Foundation (IBF)
Grants to Illinois nonprofit organizations to increase access to civil legal services, support pro-bono legal work, and educate the public about their legal rights. Emphasis is placed on programs serving those with limited means and those that are most vulnerable, such as victims of domestic violence, families facing eviction, or asylum seekers.
The Illinois Bar Foundation’s Access to Justice Grants support organizations around Illinois that provide meaningful access to the civil justice system, especially for those with limited means. Throughout its long history, the Illinois Bar Foundation has sustained and helped create many organizations that provide critical legal support to vulnerable individuals.
Grants awarded by the Illinois Bar Foundation will support one of three organizational objectives:
The Illinois Bar Foundation funds organizations or projects with a statewide, regional or local impact. All organizations must show evidence of the need and impact of their program. The IBF will entertain projects with a new or innovative approach that require seed money to launch as well as programs that result from collaboration among multiple organizations. New projects must demonstrate their viability by identifying support (financial or other) from the communities they are intended to serve. The Foundation will fund general operating expenses only when the organization’s mission fits squarely within the Illinois Bar Foundation’s grant program objectives. Otherwise, IBF grants will be restricted to specific programmatic support.
