Show your support for the OCBF by joining the ranks of its most elite and dedicated benefactors.
The Fellows Program provides critical support for OCBF programs. It also provides a setting for dedicated individuals to come together in professional comradery to support the cause. Membership in the Oakland County Bar Foundation Fellows program is evidence of professional distinction and constitutes a professional honor. The number of Fellows is limited to less than 5% of the total active membership of the State Bar of Michigan who practice in Oakland County. In order to become a Fellow, you must be nominated by a current OCBF Fellow. The program encourages not only lawyers but non-lawyers also.
In addition to the distinction of being invited to be a Fellow, some unique privileges of membership include:
- Your name will be inscribed on the permanent Fellows’ plaque now installed at the Oakland County Courthouse upon completion of your pledge;
- You will be invited to the exclusive annual Fellows’ Reception honoring those who support the charitable works of the OCBF; and
- You will receive a beautiful commemorative Pewabic tile to display and mark your commitment.
A Fellow is designated by a pledge of $1,000; payable by a pledge of $100 per year for ten years or a full payment of $1,000.
A Charter Fellow is designated by a pledge of $5,000; payable by a pledge of $500 per year for ten years or a full payment of $5,000.
