Who We Fund

Since the first grants of IOLTA funds were awarded in 1985, the Utah Bar Foundation has awarded over $5 million for charitable, law-related purposes. The existence of IOLTA has allowed us to make progress in meeting the needs of the poor and disabled for civil legal services through funding of projects. The foundation has also funded projects to improve the administration of justice and to provide law-related education for the public.
