Organizational Support Grants
The CBF is committed to providing consistent general operating support grants to effective, well-managed pro bono and legal aid organizations in the Chicago area. Last year, the CBF awarded almost $1 million in Organizational Support grants to almost 30 pro bono and legal organizations. Each year, these grants are funded entirely by money raised from generous individuals in our legal community through the Investing in Justice Campaign.
Brief descriptions of the CBF’s current grantee organizations can be found in the 2021 Grants List.
The CBF carefully vets pro bono and legal aid organizations and strategically allocates funds to make the biggest difference for people in need. Read more about the CBF’s grants process.
