Bar Foundation News: Foundation Accepting Justice Grant Applications

By:

 

The New Hampshire Bar Foundation is accepting applications for Justice Grants for programs that occur between January and December 2007. Applications must be received by the NH Bar Foundation by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 17, 2006.

           

Justice Grant applications are accepted from New Hampshire nonprofit organizations and/or programs that:

 

  • Envision new ways to create equal justice for all people.
  • Develop concrete innovations in the delivery of legal services, court operations, legal education or in other justice-related areas.
  • Address legal needs or projects which are important in a democratic society but that may go against public or political sentiment.
  • Bring together diverse resources and people to find solutions to justice-related problems.
  • Justice Grants are usually made for start-up costs, planning and research, or for funding to help stabilize new programs; they generally fall within the $500-$2,000 range, with some exceptions.
  •  

 

Justice Grants are made from the Bar Foundationís endowment, comprised of the following funds: Advancement of Justice Fund and Richard P. Dunfey Fund; Hon. William F. Batchelder Fund; Stanley M. and Thalia M. Brown Fund; Vickie Bunnell Memorial Fund; Judge Richard F. Cooper Fund; J. Albert and Mildred E. Lynch Fund; A.J. McDonough Family Fund; and the Voluntary Prevention Fund. Each fund has a particular area of interest that may be reviewed on the Bar Foundationís Web site and on the Justice Grant application form.

           

Grant applications may be downloaded at http://www.nhbarfoundation.org/, or will be mailed upon request. First-time applicants are encouraged to call the Bar Foundation to discuss proposals prior to submitting an application. For more information, call Susan Noon, the Bar Foundationís program and communications director, at 603-715-3253 or e-mail her at: snoon@nhbarfoundation.org.

 

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
