The Women’s Bar Association Foundation’s (WBAF) driving charitable mission is to support DC-based nonprofits that serve the legal and related needs of vulnerable and at-risk women or girls in the DC metropolitan community. The WBAF fulfills its mission by awarding grants and student fellowships generously funded by the local legal and broader community. Through these efforts, the WBAF supports its inspirational grant awardees and law student fellows who work for legal and social services organizations that align with our mission.
Maximizing the reach and impact of WBAF sponsor funds community-wide, the WBAF carefully evaluates and thoughtfully funds multiple community-focused nonprofit organizations that provide essential services for local women or girls. The WBAF’s grantees consist of an array of organizations: some large and well-known, others are smaller grassroots start-ups. Together they provide a comprehensive safety net for vulnerable populations of women and girls, ranging from children to the elderly, to recent immigrants and long-standing residents. Their approaches include obtaining immediate emergency orders to appellate advocacy.
To fund this critical effort, the WBAF holds three exciting events each year: a Wine Tasting and Silent Auction, a Grant Awards Ceremony, and an annual dinner that is co-sponsored with our sister organization, the Women’s Bar Association. These events bring together WBAF supporters, members from our sister organization, the Women’s Bar Association, colleagues, and friends to enjoy opportunities to celebrate, build community and, be inspired while supporting the WBAF’s mission.
We invite you to join us by sponsoring and participating in these events!
