Our Mission:


...to serve the citizens of Kansas and the legal profession through funding charitable and educational projects that foster the welfare, honor and integrity of the legal system by improving its accessibility, equality and uniformity, by enhancing public opinion of the role of lawyers in our society.

The Kansas Bar Foundation supports programs that provide access to the legal system for low-income Kansans, advocacy for children in need of care and victims of domestic violence. Funding also provides scholarships, educational materials and teacher training for public and private schools about the role of law and lawyers in society.

Founded in 1957, the foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and is supported by contributions from individuals, corporations, and IOLTA.

Your Support Can Make a Difference!

Your contribution can continue to make a real difference in the lives of Kansans. The Kansas Bar Foundation supports programs that foster the welfare, honor and integrity of the legal system. We do this by reviewing funding requests from programs that:

  • Provide access to the legal system for low-income Kansans
  • Advocate for children in need of care
  • Provide services to victims of domestic violence
  • Provide scholarships for law school and repayment of loans for law school
  • Support access to educational materials for educators and students about the role of law and lawyers in society

In addition, each year the Kansas Bar Foundation requests proposals for the IOLTA Grant Program and applications for scholarships.

2014 Kansas Bar Foundation awards more than $100,000 in grants and scholarships (click here to learn more).
