61 BENCH & BAR | e Kentucky Bar Foundation (KBF) Fellows Program recognizes those members of the Kentucky Bar who through their success in the practice of law and their generosity in contributing to the KBF have shown support for its mission. e program is designed to build an endowment fund, which will be the cornerstone for funding KBF's grants in future years. Accordingly, 75 percent of Fellows receipts are placed directly into the board-designated KBF Endowment Fund while the remaining amount of the payment supports KBF's annual law-related grants. KBA members in good standing may become a Life Fellow through a one-time, lump-sum contribution of $1,250. Members may also become a Fellow through an initial contribution of $300 and a pledge to contribute an additional $300 per year over the next four years. Upon completion of their pledges, such Fellows will attain the status of Life Fellow. To commemorate their contributions, all new Fellows and Life Fellows are recognized in the fiscal year of their enrollment at the KBF luncheon held during the KBA annual conven- tion. Please consider supporting your Kentucky Bar Foundation and its continuing good works by enrolling as a Fellow. QUESTIONS?
