  • Our mission is to promote justice -- by funding and promoting innovation in legal services, enhancing access to justice for the underserved, and supporting the public interest activities of the bar.

  • Because of the generous gifts from our donors, we have been able to fund essential programs that give children access to equal education and life opportunities, provide counseling and advice to homeless and at risk veterans and help thousands of families facing foreclosure learn their legal rights and fight displacement.

  • The BBF Board of Trustees is an exemplary group of lawyers who work to oversee policymaking and supervise the direction of management affairs of the Foundation.

  • The Boston Bar Association (BBA) is the hub of the legal profession in Boston. The Association works to advance the highest standards of excellence for the legal profession, facilitate access to justice, and serve the community at large.
