2022-2023 Recipients of MSBF Annual Grants

When you give to the Minnesota State Bar Foundation, your dollars are pooled with those of other MSBA members and organizations to support agencies/projects that support access to justice to all Minnesotans. The MSBF provides financial support for legal assistance to the disadvantaged, quality law-related education, and enhancements to the administration of justice and to the vitality of the legal profession. During its spring 2023 grant cycle, the MSBF granted $142,000 to 50 organizations. Thanks to our MSBA members for their contributions to the Foundation, made during their membership renewals each year.
