Every year, thousands of lawyers, legal professionals and other committed supporters make an investment in justice by donating to The Chicago Bar Foundation. In addition to the CBFLincoln Circle and Life Fellows programs and the annual Investing in Justice Campaign, there are several different ways that individuals can contribute throughout the year.
