GrantWatch ID#: 179544

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The West Virginia Bar Foundation awards grants to nonprofit and other charitable organizations which are involved in programs and activities to improve the administration of justice and educate citizens about their rights and responsibilities under the law in West Virginia.

The Bar Foundation generally does not make grants to support annual campaigns or membership drives, budget for operating expenses, sectarian religious programs or activities or political purposes or lobbying.

Please note: Effective in September 2015, the Bar Foundation Board of Directors took action to add a self-sufficiency policy for the Bar Foundation grant application, review and approval process. This new policy will be included on the Bar Foundation grant application form and is, as follows:

”In considering grant applications, the Bar Foundation specifically requests that applicants provide detailed plans and actions that demonstrate the ability to attain self-sufficiency regarding the programs and activities for which it is requesting Bar Foundation funding. The Bar Foundation will not provide continuous annual grants for the exact same endeavor towards achieving its mission of improving the administration of justice and the provision of legal services.”

Pre-Application Information:

The grant application deadlines are February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1.

Grants are awarded after review and consideration by the Bar Foundation’s Board of Directors. A decision on the grant will be made within two consecutive meetings of the Bar Foundation’s Board of Directors after the grant request is received. Applicants will be advised as to decisions regarding each grant request.
