Applications for grants must be postmarked by March 1, 2014. All applications must comply with the Foundation's Grant Policy and must be accompanied by a completed Grant Application.
The Trustees include the immediate Past President of the Roanoke Bar Association, who serves as chairman, the President, President-Elect, and Secretary-Treasurer of the Roanoke Bar Association. In addition, there are also three at-large members of the Bar who are elected as Trustees to three-year terms by the Roanoke Bar Association.
Under the Roanoke Law Foundation Trust Agreement, the Fellows of the Foundation program began in 2012 and was established to help the Foundation expand its activities and reach into the Roanoke Valley community by undertaking projects to support worthy causes the Fellows believe are in the best interest of the legal community and the administration of justice, and to provide additional financial support to achieve these goals.
