Society of Fellows Program
Join Boston's most charitable attorneys.
The Boston Bar Foundation’s Society of Fellows, are dedicated to expanding access to justice, and improving our community. Each Fellow's pledge is a permanent gift to the Boston Bar Foundation. This support has allowed us to use fundraising revenues for specific causes. For example:
We were able to use 100% of the proceeds from Casino Night to fund 14 internships for Boston Public High School students who interned at courts, legal services organizations, and government agencies this summer.
This winter, we will use 100% of the proceeds from the Adams Benefit to fund direct grants that help individuals and families in our community facing critical issues like homelessness, domestic violence, immigration and veteran's affairs.
Thanks to the Fellows Program the BBF has the resources ready to be a first responder in the Boston community's times of need, through programs like the Marathon Assistance Fund.
The Society of Fellows is a true community. Throughout the year they gather together to enjoy guest speeches, attend networking events, and celebrate at our seasonal receptions.
At last year's winter reception The Society of Fellows came together to listen to guest speaker Shannon Kirk share her experience providing legal assistance to a victim of the Boston Marathon bombing.
