Applause For The Texas Bar Foundation

The Foundation is finishing another remarkable year, thanks to Texas attorneys’, law firms’, and others’ contributions of their time, talent, and treasure.

I know firsthand about these contributions. In 1991, I was nominated to be a Foundation Fellow – a highlight of my legal career. I have since served as a co-chair of the Foundation’s District 10 Nominating Committee and a member of the Board of Trustees. Now, three decades after my involvement began, I am proud to be a Sustaining Life Fellow. . . .

“Thanks to the generous donations from its Fellows, the Texas Bar Foundation is able to help thousands of Texans every year.  This year we will give grants of over $1.5 million to more than seventy different organizations and charities across Texas.  The Foundation supports and helps victims of domestic violence, abused children, victims of human trafficking, elderly victims, pro bono organizations and many more.  The Foundation and its Fellows not only improve the lives of those we support, but we also enhance the rule of law and justice in Texas."

Our Mission
