The Queen’s Bench Foundation was established in 1974 by eight Queen’s Bench members with a stated specific and primary purpose to be educational, to perform research, and to disseminate information regarding the defense of human and civil rights secured by law. The first product of the Queen’s Bench Foundation was the publication of a 125-page book published in 1976 entitled “Rape Prevention and Treatment”. The Foundation has had as its focus various missions and objectives, including the production of a documentary about the history of the Queen’s Bench Bar Association. Currently, the foundation is focusing on supporting three projects: the Queen’s Bench Juvenile Hall Project; the Color of Justice project, and funding the History Committee’s preparation of the 100 year anniversary of Queen’s Bench.

    The Foundation is a §501(c)(3) charitable organization that accepts donations to fund these sources. Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
