Foundation of the Monroe County Bar
Grants to New York nonprofit organizations for programs and activities that advance the administration of justice. Eligible organizations are those that address humane, civic, charitable and educational functions of the legal community. Funding is intended to serve underprivileged populations and unmet needs. The Foundation is dedicated to ensuring access to justice for all, educating the community about the legal system and assisting members of the Bar in need.
The Foundation considers many factors in reviewing a grant request. Some of the factors are: (1) how well the program aligns with the mission of the Foundation, (2) whether there is an unmet need or an underserved population addressed by the program, (3) how innovative the program is in developing a solution to the need, (4) the financial stability of the requestor, (5) whether the requestor has access to other funds to leverage the Foundation's support, (6) if the Foundation previously funded the program, how successful the program was in meeting its objectives, and (7) whether the program can become self-sustaining over time.
