NH Bar Foundation: Foundation Annual Appeal Off to a Strong Start

The NH Bar Foundation’s Annual Appeal has started strongly, thanks to the generosity of hundreds of donors and the hard work of volunteers who staffed the phones in December to make personal appeals for support. The amount raised to date is well above the amount raised at this time last year.

The Annual Appeal provides supplemental funding for the NH Bar Foundation, which offers operational and program support for programs “honoring the law.” In addition to administering IOLTA – the largest private source of funding for civil legal aid in New Hampshire – the foundation conducts outreach to Bar members and financial institutions to maximize IOLTA revenue.

The Foundation’s stewardship of IOLTA is marked by a high degree of cooperation with and recognition of banks and credit unions paying above-market rates on IOLTA accounts. Foundation fundraising also helps support the Justice Grants program that encourages innovation in legal services and civic education programs.

This is the third year that the Bar Foundation has conducted a coordinated appeal in conjunction with the Campaign for Legal Services.

As of early January, this year’s Foundation appeal has brought in $31,355 in contributions, exceeding or close to totals raised by the Foundation in 2012 through 2014. At the same time last year, the appeal had generated $23,275. The total raised last year was $43,255.

Donations can be made through a secure link at, or by mailing a check to the NH Bar Foundation, 2 Pillsbury St., Concord, NH 03301.

The full list of donors will be published on the Bar Foundation’s website later this winter.
