Hit a Hole in One OR Make a Splash!

The Indianapolis Bar Foundation’s Lawyer Links Classic golf outing is back for 2017, and new for this year, we’re expanding the fun for non-golfers! The event is scheduled to take place on Thursday, July 13 at the Country Club of Indianapolis

Golfers can hit the links and enjoy a day on the course as always, but this year, a fundraiser pool party at the club will add on to the fun of the day. Grab your friends and join us for refreshments, summer sun and poolside games. The outing will tee off at noon and the pool party will begin at 2 p.m. Golfers and sunbathers will reconvene after the fun for a reception in the late afternoon.

Check out details and register today at indybar.org/golf.

Application Period Open for $35,000 Impact Fund Grant

The Indianapolis Bar Foundation (IBF) is now accepting applications through June 28 for the 2017 Impact Fund Grant. This annual grant of at least $35,000 will be awarded in early September 2017. The application form and additional information can be found at indybar.org/ibf.

The IBF Impact Fund serves as an important vehicle to facilitate the financial generosity of members of the Indianapolis Bar Association and the local legal community. Through the Impact Fund, the IBF seeks to invest substantial funds and association member participation in support of a project presented by a non-profit organization that seeks to affect a significant positive impact in central Indiana.

The grant will be awarded to a non-profit organization that presents an initiative that will advance the administration of justice and an understanding of the law through philanthropy, education and service. The grant criteria include the following: the project must present an opportunity for association members to support the initiative by providing human resources, the project should be either a new venture or the significant supplementation of an existing service, the project should articulate a plan to be sustained by additional funding beyond that provided by the IBF and the project should enhance public understanding and awareness of the legal profession.•
