Your help makes a difference!

Donate Now

Your contribution to the Minnesota State Bar Foundation helps support legal aid and pro bono programs, community agencies, and other law-related programs statewide. Low-income legal clients and members of the public benefit directly from these services. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.


From now until January 31st, 2022, donations will be matched up to $25,000. Funds raised will go directly to legal services organizations serving low-income Minnesotans. In addition, your donation will enable you to "check the box" on your 2023 lawyer registration form, showing you have financially supported the legal services community. Donate today!
