Bucks County Bar Foundation
Continues its Success
By Jessica Pritchard

As I take over the presidency of the Bucks County Bar
Foundation, I would be remiss if I did not reflect on
the woman who came before me. More specifically,
past President Tina Mazaheri who, through her hard
work and dedication, set forth a legacy of leadership
and philanthropy.
When Mazaheri took over as Foundation President four
years ago, she shouldered the responsibility of increasing
the endowment and continuing the community outreach
for which the Foundation is known. Accepting that
challenge, she doubled the Foundation's endowment
to $100,000. Under her direction, the "Learning with
Lawyers" program, wherein attorneys go into local
underserved schools and teach a lesson on the United
States Constitution, increased as to both the number of
schools served as well the number of BCBA attorneys
participating in the program. Under her leadership, in
2019, the Foundation donated $25,000 to the Legal
Aid Society of Southeastern Pennsylvania. Her efforts
on behalf of the Foundation are laudable and she has
earned my gratitude.

The Bucks County Bar Foundation Board of Directors.

The mission of the Bucks County Bar Foundation, a
501(c)(3) charitable entity, is:

the year, the BCBA Board of Directors passed a resolution
directing that the Foundation increase its endowment to
$500,000 by January 2026. This is a lofty goal and one for
which the Trustees of the BCBF are ready and willing to
undertake. I will be seeking the assistance of the Association's members to move forward in this endeavor and
look forward to having record attendance at our annual
St. Patrick's Day event, scheduled for March 12, 2020 at
Hops/Scotch in Doylestown. It is my hope that I can rely on
members to attend and to assist moving the BCBF towards
meeting the new goals.

To promote and support programs, organizations, and
individuals throughout Bucks County who are engaged in
activities designed to foster respect for the rule of law, the
advancement of rights, liberties and protections under the
law as well as activities which have as a principal purpose
the advancement of social justice for the individuals,
families and communities of Bucks County.
Thanks to Mazaheri and the rest of the Trustees,
the Foundation sits poised to expand its central
goals and mission.

Lastly, I would like to thank other Trustees that will be
leaving the Foundation Board after years of selfless service.
Many thanks to Barbara Lyons, Carol Shelly, Maureen
Carlton, Ryan Mellon and Keith Williams. I anticipate that
they will continue to support our mission, but are happy to
eliminate one meeting from their calendars. 

In 2020, the Foundation will be working more closely
with its counterparts in the Bucks County Bar Association
in furtherance of its mission. The leadership of the two
organizations realize that the Foundation must be provided
a clear direction. As such, at its first Board meeting of
