Thank you to all of the Foundation donors!  Without your consistent generosity, the Foundation would not be able to support its many critical programs, which in turn help so many within our communities!

The Foundation’s college scholarship, law school stipend, and law school pilot programs are funded through year-round efforts, including table sponsorship at the annual FCBA Chairman’s Dinner, sponsorship of the Charity Auction, participation in the spring Foundation Golf Tournament, and donations from individual members and their employers to the Foundation’s Annual Fund throughout our fiscal year, which runs from July 1 to June 30.

Those who donate at least $10,000 will be recognized for donating Named Scholarships. These extraordinary gifts will be recognized on our Foundation website throughout the year, in our annual report, at the Chairman’s dinner, and in the FCBA newsletter. The Foundation will recognize other donations at the levels noted below, and highlight individuals and donor groups in the FCBA newsletter on a regular basis, at the annual meeting in June, and at the Chairman’s dinner in December.
