How You Can Help
Support is vital to The Missouri Bar Foundation’s ability to serve as a source of financial assistance to others. Through gifts, contributions, and donations of all sizes, the foundation continues its long tradition of support for outstanding projects.
Financial support for the foundation may be provided in many ways, including:
• Membership in The Missouri Bar Foundation through The Fellows program
• Designating your donation as a memorial to a member of the profession or to honor a deceased friend
• Honoring a colleague on a special occasion with a donation in their name
• Arranging a bequest to The Missouri Bar Foundation
The Missouri Bar Foundation is grateful to those members of The Missouri Bar who have accepted a special invitation from the Board of Trustees to participate in the Fellows program. The contributions of the following Fellows are greatly appreciated and have assisted the Foundation in fulfilling its goal to support and expand law-related educational and charitable programs throughout Missouri.
Only one percent of members of The Missouri Bar may become Fellows. A Fellow of the Foundation is first a lawyer in good standing of the Missouri Bar. After demonstrating significant contributions to the legal community in Missouri, one can be extended a special invitation by the Board of Trustees. A Fellow has also contributed $1,000 to the Foundation in one payment or over the course of five years, with a minimum payment of $200 per year.
The next class above Fellow is Life Fellow. A Life Fellow has contributed an additional $2,500 to the Foundation either in a single payment or on a schedule of $250 per year for 10 years.
Sustaining Life Fellows
A Sustaining Life Fellow has achieved the class of Life Fellow but then continued to contribute the annual minimum amount that distinguished a Life Fellow from a Fellow. The Life Fellow becomes a Sustaining Life Fellow the year such a contribution is made.
