Boston Bar Foundation Gives $25,000 to the One Fund Boston

The Boston Bar Foundation today announced that it has donated $25,000 to the One Fund Boston, the charity established to aid victims of the Marathon Monday bombings here in Boston.
 
"The gift we announce today reflects our heartfelt concern and commitment to our community," said Boston Bar Foundation President Jack Clymer. "We hope this contribution will inspire members of the Boston Bar Association and lawyers throughout the nation to give generously to the One Fund Boston in light of this horrific tragedy."

Today's announcement by the Boston Bar Foundation, the charitable affiliate of the Boston Bar Association (BBA), comes on the heels of the BBA's recruiting more than 120 of its members, 20 law firms and 2 law schools to provide pro bono legal assistance to small, independent businesses affected by the attacks on Patriot's Day.
