Alexandria Bar Foundation

The Foundation of the Alexandria Bar Association is the charitable arm of the association. The foundation provides scholarships to Alexandria high school students and provides grants to local organizations for projects that have at least one of the following purposes and that will primarily serve residents of the City of Alexandria:

1. The provision of legal services to indigent individuals;
2. Improvements in the legal system;
3. Improvements in the access of individuals to the legal system;
4. Improvements in the administration of justice; and
5. The provision of legal or law-related education.

The Foundation supports two fundraisers beyond direct appeal to the legal community. Beat the Odds© scholarships are supported by direct contributions and the annual Little Theater Night with silent auction in the fall. Jazz4Justice® is an evening of jazz music played by a jazz ensemble from the Alexandria campus of Northern Virginia Community College. Proceeds from the evening are divided among the music scholarships for NOVA, the Alexandria Bar Foundation, and Legal Services of Northern Virginia.

The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and contributions to it are tax-deductible to the extent of the law.
