Grants to Minnesota nonprofit organizations to promote equal access to justice for local residents in eligible locations. Funding may be requested for general operating support as well as for specific projects. The goal of funding is to enhance the quality of people’s lives through the law, to elevate the public’s connection to the legal system, and to facilitate the delivery of legal services. Programs and projects funded by the HCBF must be delivered in Hennepin County and benefit the Hennepin County community.
Since 1968, the Hennepin County Bar Foundation (HCBF) has made a positive impact on the community by funding legal projects and organizations that support those in need throughout Hennepin County. The Foundation was established with the express purpose of providing financial assistance to individuals, organizations, and projects related to the law and the legal system. The mission of the HCBF is: promoting access to justice for the people of Hennepin County.
The Foundation is specifically focused on efforts that serve individuals and families who face barriers in gaining access to justice, including those who are low income, and those who do not qualify for pro bono assistance but are unable to afford legal services.
