What Your Gift Will Make Possible: A Modern Building & Strengthened Programs and Services

Donate Now

The City Bar remains committed to fulfilling its enduring mission – to be a thought leader in protecting the rule of law and to continue to serve the legal and public communities faithfully. This momentous milestone calls for critical renovation projects to fortify the City Bar for the next 150 years. The funds raised through this capital campaign will be used to revitalize our library into a space that allows for multi-purpose uses, with technological upgrades, as well as to modernize and optimize other spaces throughout the building.

These improvements will enhance our committee work, live-streaming capabilities, and member networking events. They will also support our ability to serve the public through our pro bono and advocacy work as well as efforts to strengthen the diversity pipeline to the profession, and provide use of the historic House of the Association as a meeting place for members and others.
