About the Women's Bar Association Foundation
Founded in 1981, the mission of the WBA Foundation is to leverage the generosity of lawyers and friends to support nonprofits that serve the legal and related needs of women and girls in the DC Metropolitan community.

To further this mission, the WBAF supports community non-profit organizations in the D.C. Metropolitan Area through its annual grant program.  For more information about our grantees or the grant application process click here, or navigate through the Foundation's webpage using the WBAF menu and links on the left. The WBAF also offers a Founders Fellowship each year to an area law school to support a student  who is pursuing a public interest summer internship to advance the legal interests of women and children.

Thank you to our
supporters for their donations that make the WBA Foundation programs possible.
