Grants starting at $500 to Michigan nonprofit organizations for programs that educate the community on legal matters and improve access to legal services in Oakland County and throughout the State. Funding is also intended for the enhancement of the local law library and for continuing education for judges and lawyers.
The Oakland County Bar Foundation is dedicated to ensuring access to justice and an understanding of the law in the local community. It supports not only traditional programs, but encourages innovative approaches, which respond to unmet needs. Specific grant purposes are as follows:
1. Improving and facilitating the administration of justice in Oakland County and throughout the State of Michigan;
2. Ensuring to the fullest extent possible that legal services are made available to all members of the public;
3. Promoting legal research and study of law, as well as, the diffusion of legal knowledge through support of the Adams-Pratt Law Oakland County Law Library;
4. Promoting the continuing legal education of lawyers and judges; and
5. Educating the public as to their legal rights and obligations; and fostering and maintaining the honor and integrity of the profession of the law.
The Foundation’s Board of Trustees places a priority on programs and services that meet the following criteria:
1. Demonstrate innovative approaches or new ideas;
2. Provides some benefit to individuals who work or reside in Oakland County;
3. Has the potential for independent continuity;
4. Demonstrate community support;
5. Avoid duplication of services in the service area;
6. Address underserved need or populations;
7. Meet the Foundation’s mission and grant purpose;
8. Include a meaningful evaluation component;
9. Leverage a significant volunteer commitment; and
10. Use challenge grants or other fund-matching arrangements to augment Foundation funds.
Priorities may change in the future as resources and needs change. Grants for “start-up money” to new organizations may be considered where such actions might provide incentive to other donors to support worthy projects that require additional funds.
