Justice Funds honor North Carolina lawyers, past and present, whose careers have shown dedication to the pursuit of justice and outstanding service to the profession and to the public.
A Justice Fund is a named endowment and may be established in recognition of an attorney with a gift of $50,000 by one or more contributors (a group of attorneys, associates and family members). Restricted Justice Funds earmarked for specific new projects may be created with a minimum gift of $100,000 to the Endowment.
North Carolina lawyers honored by the creators of a Justice Fund receive special recognition in the form of a permanent, copper-etched plaque and biographical sketch maintained at the North Carolina Bar Center in Cary.
If you would like to talk to someone about establishing a Liberty or Justice Fund, please contact Tom Hull at 919.677.0561 or [email protected].
Recognize a North Carolina lawyer whose long career has been important to you with the establishment of a Liberty Fund.
A Liberty Fund recognizes the honoree (living or deceased) and their contributions to the legal profession in North Carolina with a glass panel inscribed with the attorney’s likeness, name and hometown. Liberty Funds are established by law firms, colleagues or families with a gift of $10,000 to the North Carolina Bar Foundation Endowment.
Every new Liberty Fund will be dedicated at an annual recognition ceremony held at the Bar Center. Families, colleagues and friends of the honoree will be invited to this special occasion as guests of the bar leadership.
The North Carolina Bar Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and all contributions are tax-deductible.
