Fundraising Events

Hennepin County Bar Foundation. Est. 1968

Each year, hundreds of HCBA members provide financial support to the Hennepin County Bar Foundation through our fundraising events. The two major events that raise funds for the HCBF are the annual Bar Benefit and Charity Golf Classic. Your participation helps the foundation provide meaningful grants to the community. In 2020, over $270,000 was granted to local nonprofits, including our partner Volunteer Lawyers Network. Your support is truly appreciated, and makes a difference in our community.
