The Hillsborough County Bar Foundation is the charitable arm of the Hillsborough County Bar Association and a Section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization. All contributions to the foundation are tax deductible.

Please consider one of the following ways of giving:

Make A Matching Gift to Metropolitan Ministries

Tampa attorney Steve Yerrid, in an effort to help the most vulnerable in our community who are being adversely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, has issued a matching gift challenge to his colleagues in the legal and business community. Yerrid is personally pledging a gift of up to $100,000 to Metropolitan Ministries to assist their efforts to feed the hungry in Hillsborough County. The Hillsborough County Bar Foundation is joining Yerrid in this endeavor, and coordinating the collection and donation of matching gifts from the local legal community.

Make A General Contribution

A donation in any amount is a great way to support important programs of the Hillsborough County Bar Foundation, especially community organizations that provide access to justice and important services that impact the lives of underserved men, women and children in our community.

To make a general contribution, fill out this form.

Give When You Renew Your HCBA Dues

When you receive your annual dues statement from the Hillsborough County Bar Association, you have the opportunity to make a $25 contribution to the Foundation. Although this amount may appear nominal, when included with other members’ contributions, your donation significantly increases the ability of the Foundation to support charitable endeavors.

Leave A Lasting Legacy

Through the Foundation's Capital Campaign, you can leave a lasting legacy for a loved one or show your own support for your local Bar through the naming opportunities available at the Chester H. Ferguson Law Center. Money raised through this campaign has supported the purchase of land and the construction of the law center, and once the loan obligation is met, additional funds will be used for an endowment for the foundation’s charitable activities and the law center building's maintenance.

Leave a lasting legacy through the Capital Campaign.
