Idaho Law Foundation

Every day, Idaho attorneys share their talents to improve the lives of Idaho citizens. Last year alone, attorneys contributed over $45,000 and 7,000 hours of service to the Idaho Law Foundation (ILF), the charitable arm of the Idaho State Bar.

In 1975 a group of visionary Idaho attorneys established ILF under this mission:

The Idaho Law Foundation supports the right of all people to live in a peaceful community. To support this fundamental right, we will educate all people about the role of law in a democratic society, provide opportunities for people to avoid and resolve conflicts, and enhance the education and competence of lawyers.

Active and involved attorneys ensure the continuation of this essential mission and ILF offers many avenues for active involvement. How will you help support the work of the Foundation? Find out more about Opportunities for Service.


A thirteen member Board of Directors governs the Foundation. Board Members come from all parts of Idaho, representing both the legal profession and the communities we serve. Click Here to view a list of current Board members.
