The Atlanta Bar Foundation is the charitable arm of the Atlanta Bar Association and a Section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization. All contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible according to law. Consider one of these many ways of giving!
A donation in any amount is a great way to support important programs of the Atlanta Bar that help develop young lawyers, such as the Summer Law Internship Program and the Minority and Diversity Clerkship Program. It also gives aid to organizations and programs that the Atlanta Bar help found which includes the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation, Truancy Intervention Project, Atlanta Santa Project and Atlanta Legal Aid Society, along with other community organizations that provide access to justice and provide important services to impact the lives of underserved men, women and children in our community.
When you receive your annual dues statement from the Atlanta Bar Association, a voluntary $30 contribution to the Foundation is included. Although this amount may appear nominal, when included with other members’ contributions, your donation significantly increases the ability of the Foundation to support the charitable aims and goals of the Atlanta Bar Association.

BEQUESTS/OTHER PLANNED GIVING
A bequest is a straightforward method of giving and can be a percentage of an estate, property or a specific dollar amount. Other forms of planned giving include trusts, gifts of securities, property, life insurance or the like. Gifts of appreciated assets, such as securities, property or life insurance, can provide an excellent way to redistribute assets and provide a more significant gift with a smaller outlay of cash. If you are considering a planned gift to the Foundation, please contact the Foundation Executive Director. We also advise that you work with a tax advisor when considering planned gifts to the Foundation.
