About the Bar

IOLTA/Georgia Bar Foundation

The Georgia Bar Foundation was created for charitable, religious, and educational purposes in 1967. It is a 501(c)(3) organization named by the Supreme Court of Georgia in 1983 to receive IOLTA funds to support legal services for the poor, to improve the administration of justice, to promote professionalism in law practice in order best to serve the public, to aid children involved in the justice system, and to advance the legal system through historical study. The Foundation has a 19-member Board of Trustees, 16 of whom are appointed directly by the Supreme Court of Georgia and three of whom are members by virtue of being officers of the State Bar of Georgia. The Foundation has three staff members.
