Our Mission

The Peoria County Bar Association Foundation was established on October 2, 1970, as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt entity, organized and operated exclusively for charitable purposes under the leadership of Golden A. McConnell and J. Martin Lawless, then-President and Secretary-Treasurer, respectively, of the Peoria County Bar Association (“PCBA”). The mission of the Foundation is to make grants “…with a view toward the advancement of the science of jurisprudence, the promotion of the administration of justice, the encouragement of a thorough legal education, the upholding of the honor and dignity of the Bar and the perpetuation of the history of the profession and memory of its members.”
