BBF Society of Fellows Program Swells to 400 Members Strong

The Boston Bar Foundation’s Society of Fellows, started in 1996, has experienced incredible growth over the past several years thanks to the commitment of Boston’s lawyers. Their dedication to providing opportunities for Boston’s youth, expanding access to justice, and engaging in projects that improve our community is the reason for the programs recent success. We know that “success” can sometimes be a vague word, so we decided to break it down by the numbers:

  • This year alone 43 Boston area attorneys have either joined the Society of Fellows Program or committed to upgrading their membership, making the Society of Fellows over 400 members strong.
  • In the past two years alone, new members have collectively pledged over a half million dollars.  Fellows pledges are dedicated the endowment, providing a lasting source of support as we advance our mission.
  • Because of the growth in the Fellows program, we were able to use 100% of the proceeds from Casino Night to fund 14 internships for Boston Public High School students who are currently interning at courts, legal services organizations, and government agencies this summer.  This winter, we will use 100% of the proceeds from the Adams Benefit to fund direct grants that help individuals and families in our community facing critical issues like homelessness, domestic violence, immigration and veteran's affairs.

A special thanks to those who have recently joined or upgraded their membership this year for their generous support.  For more on the Program, or to see our full list of members click here.
