The Chicago Bar Foundation’s Investing in Justice Campaign is an annual campaign where the entire legal community comes together around our common cause as a legal profession: helping to ensure that everyone has access to necessary legal help, not just people who can afford it.

100% of individual contributions to the Campaign go directly towards CBF grants to more than 35 pro bono and legal aid organizations and enable them to provide critical legal assistance to tens of thousands of people in need.


Your contribution helps:

  • Strengthen Chicago’s pro bono and legal aid organizations
  • Enable dedicated lawyers to pursue and remain in careers in legal aid
  • Maximize opportunities for pro bono lawyers to effectively supplement the work of their legal aid counterparts
  • Make the courts more user-friendly and accessible for people in need

Over the past seven years, the Investing in Justice Campaign has raised a total of more than $8.5 million. The 2014 Campaign will again fund CBF grants that support a comprehensive range of legal services to many thousands of people in need including the elderly, the disabled, veterans, children, domestic violence victims and people at risk of losing their homes.

Thanks to the ongoing success of the Campaign, thousands of people in need are able to get critical help, and the justice system continues to work better for everyone, making our community a fairer and better place for all of us.
