The Charles P. Normandin Fund

Donations to the Charles P. Normandin Fund, which are fully tax deductible, are used to fund grants from the Boston Bar Foundation to support bankruptcy-related pro bono, public service and civic programs of the Boston Bar Association.  

This fund supports the M. Ellen Carpenter Financial Literacy Program, which gives Boston public school students the opportunity to learn about their financial rights and responsibilities.  

About Charles P. Normandin

In December 2005, Charles “Charlie” Normandin, a very distinguished and beloved member of the legal community, passed away.  Charlie was a partner and of counsel at Ropes & Gray and was considered by many to be the “dean” of the bankruptcy bar of Massachusetts.  An active member of the Boston Bar Association’s Bankruptcy Section and a fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy, his commitment to professional excellence was matched only by his commitment to community service.  He believed in the importance of providing pro bono services to those who are less fortunate and viewed community service as a responsibility of the profession.

This fund honors Charlie’s contributions to the bankruptcy bar and his lifelong commitment to community service and education.
