About the Foundation

Hennepin County Bar Foundation. Est. 1968

 

Since 1968, the Hennepin County Bar Foundation has made a positive impact on the community by funding legal projects and agencies that support those in need throughout Hennepin County.  

OUR MISSION:

"Promoting access to justice for the people of Hennepin County."

 

OUR IMPACT:

Access to justice is delivered in Hennepin County in a variety of ways.  Some organizations improve the administration of justice, others directly deliver legal services, and some focus on public understanding of the law. Together, these strategies lead to a more just community.
