In 1969, the Board of Trustees of the Somerset County Bar Association recognized a need to further reach out to the public and local legal community to offer programs, services and funding. Formed as a separate, charitable organization from the Bar Association, it currently offers and supports a number of programs and fundraisers.
The Foundation consists of a Board of Trustees who oversee activities, fundraising and the awarding of donations to local non-profit organizations, which are generally related to the law, and scholarships to deserving local New Jersey law school students.
Opportunities for volunteerism abound for Foundation fundraisers and activities. If interested, please contact the Somerset County Bar Foundation Executive Director, Elvia Viera at firstname.lastname@example.org or 908-685-2323.
