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.
  • Financial Literacy Program

    Since its founding in 2005, the 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!
  • Law Day in the Schools Program

    Law Day in the Schools Program

    Since 1986, lawyers and judges have visited classrooms to expose young people to the legal field and share their passion for the law with a diverse population of Boston youth.

    Thank you for visiting our classroom to teach us about John Adams. I learned a lot about him. I appreciate you coming even when you had work to do. Thank you for going over rules that we have to follow at school, at a store, in a car and when playing sports.
