Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Armed with the volunteer efforts of many dedicated members, the CCBF is reaching out to strengthen Camden County by developing and sponsoring community service programs to help meet the needs of those less fortunate. Such programs include high school and law student scholarships, Christmas, Easter and Halloween parties for disadvantaged children, a picnic in the park for inner-city children, an Adopt-a-Family program for the holidays, and more!

The Camden County Bar Foundation supports and partners with other non-profit organizations in Camden County, such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Anna Sample House, Larc School, Veteran’s Haven and Cathedral Kitchen, to identify and develop projects and programs that have an enduring impact on the people and communities we serve.

The Camden County Bar Foundation has a Board of Trustees and membership base of approximately 2,000 attorneys and judges who are dedicated to the mission and programs of the Foundation. Through special fundraising events, we aim to raise the funds necessary to accomplish the goals of the organization and continue to expand our outreach to further assist those in need in our community.

Since 1987, the Camden County Bar Foundation has been sponsoring and developing community service programs that help meet the needs of those fortunate. We have donated over $75,000 to the Larc School in Bellmawr for special needs children; we have donated thousands to Veteran's Haven of Camden County to assist our veterans; we have donated over $250,000 in student scholarships that have helped shape the futures of talented young men and women from every corner of Camden County; and have hosted parties and picnics, as well as an Adopt-a-Family for underprivileged children and families for over 30 years. Our goal is to continue to expand upon the terrific work we do by partnering with more non-profit organizations in Camden County and developing new programs to further our mission of service to the community.
