Bar Foundation

Since 1990, the Anne Arundel County Bar Foundation (AACBF) has pursued its mission to foster and maintain the honor and integrity of the profession of law. Each year, we support several charitable and service initiatives that strengthen our community and ensure equitable access to justice. The AACBF made significant progress in 2014, distributing more than $15,000 in funds to projects that had a direct impact on our local youth and neighbors in need.

The AACBF is extremely grateful to the members of the Anne Arundel Bar Association (AABA) who have volunteered their time and made donations to support Foundation initiatives.
With your help, the Foundation has made a positive impact on communities throughout our county, creating a better quality of life for all residents.

The IRS has approved the AACBF as a 501(c)(3) organization, and therefore is eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions.
