Bergen County Bar Association



Capital Campaign

The Bergen County Bar Foundation has been the proud owner of 15 Bergen Street, the Bergen County Bar Association’s headquarters, since 2000. Since then, this building has served as the heart and home to both of our beloved organizations. Serving as more than our administrative headquarters, 15 Bergen Street functions as a site for our continuing legal and community education programs, a meeting and conference venue and a social meeting place for our growing legal community.

Today, nearly a quarter century later, our headquarters needs substantial renovation, modernization and repair in order to keep true to and honor its mission of serving the needs of our Foundation’s and Association’s mission and members.

It was through the generous contributions from our membership and community that made it possible for the Bar Foundation to first purchase our home. The Bar Foundation hopes that, once again, you will consider donating in its effort to improve our headquarters. Your generous contribution will ensure that we can continue to meet and serve the needs of our members as we enter into a new era.
