The Edward M. Casey Fund

The Edward M. Casey Fund was established in 1977 to improve the delivery of legal services for the poor in Greater Boston. Edward Casey was an individual who often spoke passionately about justice, fairness, kindness and of our moral responsibility to each other. Providing access to justice for the poor was his guiding light in his final years.

Today, legal services programs are more hard-pressed than ever before to meet the needs of growing numbers of low-income individuals and families. 100% of the donations to this fund will be distributed by the Boston Bar Foundation in the form of grants to legal services organizations. Over the past three years, more than $75,000 from the Casey Fund has supported legal services in Greater Boston.
