Advancing Equal Justice and law-related education through Fellowship


Lifetime Legacy - Endowment Giving

Named funds provide lasting support for purposes you designate and are part of our Endowment. With a minimum gift of $10,000, you and/or your family can establish a named fund. Not more than 5% of your fund will be expended annually to further the mission of the Louisiana Bar Foundation by providing an annual distribution to an agency or funding area within the LBF mission.


The LBF offers three types of named funds:

Simple Endowment
Best suited to meet emerging needs or opportunities in the community. Donors place no restrictions on how their funds are used and decisions are left to our Board of Directors. Because of the contemporaneous leadership of these funds, they are the most timeless in terms of community impact.

Area of Interest Endowment
Supports programs, projects and initiatives in a specific area. Annual distributions are made at the discretion of the Board to an area of interest chosen by the donor and within the mission of the LBF. Areas of interest include: Building Capital Development, Children's Legal Services, Law Related Education, Legal Assistance to the Poor, Loan Repayment Assistance Program, and Jock Scott Community Partnership Panel Grants.

Designated Agency Endowment
Support a specific organization. Annual distributions are made at the discretion of the Board to an agency chosen by the donor and within the mission of the LBF. If an agency ceases to exist or the purpose for which a fund was created becomes obsolete, the Board of Directors may redirect the fund to best achieve the basic intent of its donor. Example: A direct annual grant to Acadiana Legal Services Corporation
