Foundation Announces Requests for Grant Proposals
Deadline March 13, 2015
The Knoxville Bar Foundation was established in 1992 to improve the administration of justice, to enhance the public's understanding of and confidence in the legal system, and to serve the legal profession. The Bar Foundation has provided just under $330,000 for local law related projects and programs since its inception. Per capita this is a real contribution to programs that promote and enable the essence of what we as lawyers seek – liberty and justice for all. Last year the Board of Directors approved ten grant requests, totaling $ 25,000.
In May, 2014, the Knoxville Bar Foundation will again award grants to deserving applicants. The individual grant awards are usually $5,000 or less and the deadline for submitting grant applications is March 13, 2015. Please note that grant funding may not be used for operating costs and endowments. We are excited about this year's grant program and encourage interested parties and organizations to apply.
