Co-Sponsorship Program

Each year, the Foundation awards funds from the IOLTA Fund of the Bar of New Jersey to help underwrite law-related education programs sponsored by other nonprofit organizations.

We are at the forefront of providing legal education and violence prevention programs through our grant programs. By partnering with other organizations, we continue our commitment to broadening our public education campaign so that free legal information is available to New Jersey citizens statewide.

We invite non-profit organizations to work with us so we can accomplish this goal together. The Co-Sponsorship application is available now and the deadline for submission is January 24, 2020.

For questions or further information, contact Mary Jean Barnes, Director of Administration & Grants Programs at 732-937-7507 or [email protected]

A few words from our cosponsors….

“With the Foundation’s support we educate hundreds of professionals and family members of people with disabilities each year. These seminars help families answer the difficult question, ‘who will care for my loved one with disabilities when I’m gone?’ Thank you NJSBF!”

Ellen Nalven

Executive Director, PLAN/NJ

“Since 2005, the Foundation has made it possible for Covenant House’s Youth Advocacy Center to provide legal services to homeless and at-risk youth. Our work with disadvantaged youth would not be possible without the support of the Foundation and are grateful for this continued collaboration.”
