Please click here to read the proposed changes to the Bar Foundation Bylaws to be voted on at the DCBA Fall Membership Meeting on September 27.

Proposed changes are in red and underlined.

Article II – adding Section 6 re: formation of committees.

This change was prompted to provide a process for DCBA’s EPOC and our Foundation to cooperate in reinstating the former Keystone Bar Association’s Nix Scholarship and Marshall Fellowship programs.

Article IX – this article adds indemnification language to the bylaws


The DCBF was created in June of 1945 with a broad purpose and fulfilled that mission by providing funding to many worthy causes. In the past 15 years, the DCBF has focused on causes that have promoted access to justice, particularly to those struggling with poverty and family issues.  Our most successful cause to date is the We Care About Children (WCAC) Campaign.  In operation for over 11 years, the DCBF WCAC has helped fund a full-time custody attorney at MidPenn Legal Services and this lawyer has closed more than 1,500 cases and helped more than 4,500 individuals.  More than $700,000 has been raised and the Foundation is committed to ensuring the continuation of this very worthwhile program that directly assists families in our Dauphin County community.  Gifts to the Foundation can be made on a yearly basis with DCBA dues statements, periodic gifts, estate bequests, or through the United Way.  For additional information, please contact Kim Snell-Zarcone, Esq. at 717.232.7536, etx. 7, or kim@dcba-pa.org.
