The North Carolina Bar Foundation is driven by its mission: uniting the talent and generosity of our profession to be a power of greater good for the people of North Carolina. Our mission reflects the core values of access to justice, leadership, professionalism, education and public service that have mobilized the members of the North Carolina Bar Association to support the Foundation’s pro bono and public service programs:

  • 4ALL Statewide Service Day is an annual call-a-lawyer public service program that engages over 500 volunteer attorneys to provide free legal information.
  • Lawyers for Literacy is a public service program that matches legal professionals with local school children to improve students’ reading skills and spark their interest in books, civics and history.
  • NC  Free Legal Answers is a web-based pro bono program that expands public access to legal advice and information about non-criminal matters for low-income people.
  • NC LEAP provides services to low-wealth entrepreneurs and qualified inventors through education, legal representation and patent assistance.
  • Wills for Heroes provides essential legal documents — including wills, living wills, and powers of attorney — free of charge to North Carolina first responders.

Our Foundation needs the support of every member of the North Carolina Bar Association to fulfill its mission.
