The Maine Bar Foundation announced Thursday that it will start a major fundraising campaign this month to replenish its endowment and support legal service providers.

“The planned giving campaign will begin with a request to Mainers in the legal community, although it is open to anyone interested in participating,” the group said in a media release.

The foundation coordinates the fundraising that benefits the state’s six nonprofit legal aid providers. Those agencies, including Pine Tree Legal Assistance, help low-income and elderly citizens.
