Family Matters Judicial District Giving Challenge


The New York Bar Foundation and the Fellows of the New York Bar Foundation invite YOU to participate in the Family Matters Judicial District Giving Challenge.

Honor Your Family and Help Others
Attorneys, their families, firm colleagues, and friends are invited to come together to honor your Mother, your Father, or any parent that inspires you by making a donation to the New York Bar Foundation in their memory/honor.  Honorees will receive a notification that a gift was made in their honor and the gift helps families throughout New York State.

Nearly 70% of our grant applications relate to life-changing family matters. Funds raised during the challenge will go toward these critically important grants.   You can help fund legal services programs that provide legal advice and representation to  help families, single parents, and children in life changing areas including:

~eviction and housing
~domestic violence and safety
~guardianship and family caregivers for adults with Down Syndrome and Alzheimer's Disease
~low-income parents of special needs children who need have education issues
~family matters like supervised parental visits, custody, and visitation
~LGBTQ+ family related matters

The people you will help are some of our neighbors who suffer the most.  One grantee organization shared, “The populations that we serve are the most vulnerable children and adults in the community. When we meet them, they are often in chaos and don’t know where to turn for help with basic needs.”

Join the Competition--Select your Judicial District when you give!  The top 3 fundraising districts will be recognized by The Foundation at the end of the challenge, which concludes at midnight on Father’s Day.

 Send a photo and name of your honoree to to be posted on our social media pages.
