Invest in a Project

Would you like to support a particular Boston Bar Foundation project? Here's a look at some programs and funds that are making a significant impact in our community.

  • Lawyer for the Day in the Boston Housing Court

    Since 1999, over 15,000 unrepresented landlords and tenants have been represented on eviction day - making all the difference for individuals and families who are facing the loss of their homes as well as landlords who are in need of a better understanding of their rights.

    The Program serves as an inspiring reminder of the values that form the foundation of our legal system - fairness and equal access to justice.
  • Summer Jobs Program

    Help us provide valuable summer work experiences for Boston Public High School Students in the legal field, and equip the workforce of the future with the skills necessary to succeed.

    I have learned that law is far more vast than I expected. Lately I've been working with Immigration Law, and that has opened my eyes to the broader aspects of what immigrants, such as my family, have to go through just to stay in this country.
  • M. Ellen Carpenter Financial Literacy Program

    Since its founding in 2005, the M. Ellen Carpenter Financial Literacy Program has reached over 4,000 high school students and given them the opportunity to learn about their financial rights and responsibilities.

    I volunteered because I wanted to help provide some basic, highly practical skills to a young population that has little or no access to them. The students were engaged and interested. Their teacher was fantastic. The most memorable moment was the collective gasp that went through the room when the students realized how long it would take to pay off a relatively small credit card balance by making only the minimum payments — they were stunned!
