Saying he is stepping out of public life, former Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller has donated his remaining campaign funds to the Indiana Bar Foundation.
The $10,155.19 gift was given to the bar foundation on Dec. 30 and will be used to support the organization’s civic education and access to justice programs. IBF Executive Director Charles Dunlap said the money will boost the expansion of the civic education curriculum including We the People and Indiana High School Mock Trial programs.
“Attorney General Zoeller has been a long-time supporter and volunteer for the foundation’s many civic education and civil justice projects and this significant donation is yet another way he continue to support the foundation’s mission,” Dunlap said. “We are incredibly appreciative of his continued support.”
Zoeller, a native of New Albany, served two terms as the state top lawyer starting in 2009. He has spent much of his career in public service, having previously worked as chief deputy to his predecessor, Steve Carter, and also in both the U.S. Senate and White House for former Vice President Dan Quayle.
“It has been my highest honor to serve as Indiana’s Attorney General and this contribution concludes my public service while continuing my support of the legal profession through the Indiana Bar Foundation’s work,” Zoeller said. “I encourage others in the legal profession to consider supporting the Indiana Bar Foundation and its vital work in civic education.”
