The Louisiana Bar Foundation

Advancing Equal Justice and law-related education through Fellowship


The Louisiana Bar Foundation (LBF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) entity organized under the state of Louisiana. The LBF supports programs that provide free legal services for the poor in all 64 parishes. As the largest funder of legal aid in the state, the LBF makes grants to organizations that provide free legal aid to women, children, the elderly, people with disabilities, the newly unemployed, those facing loss of their homes and those in need of guidance to secure food stamps. We offer four types of funding: annual/sustaining funds; discretionary funds; special initiatives; and scholarships, fellowships and awards.
