The Voluntary Bar Association Community Service Grant Program was established by the Foundation in 2003-04 as an ongoing program of one-time grants up to $5,000 each awarded to voluntary bar associations in Florida to promote new or significant improvement in existing charitable, community-service projects. The goals of the Voluntary Bar Association Community Service Grant Program are:

1. To increase community service by Florida's legal profession through voluntary bar association initiatives; and
