Programs of the IBF


Lawyers Care


The Illinois Bar Foundation provides funding to not-profit organizations around the state of Illinois; supporting the following three objectives:

    By offering monthly support, the IBF helps eligible attorneys and their families maintain modest but reasonable standards of living. This support helps keep them in their home, buy
    groceries, and pay for the essentials of living as they
    deal with these challenges.
