The Lawyers Club of San Diego Fund for Justice is our charitable arm that allows us to effect positive social change by reaching out to "at-risk” women in the community. Since 1999, we have made 171 grants of $455,000 to 48 organizations.

Lawyers Club of San Diego Fund for Justice Statement of Purpose: 

To make charitable gifts in the name of Lawyers Club of San Diego (“Lawyers Club”) and its members to grantees who address Lawyers Club's mission to advance the status of women* in law and society, including but not limited to:
  1. Domestic and sexual violence against women and non-binary victims with emphasis on legal services, education, awareness and prevention;
  2. Gender discrimination, harassment, or bias against women and non-binary victims; and
  3. The unmet legal needs of women and non-binary victims, particularly programs that support and improve the administration of justice.
In appropriate charitable contexts, Fund for Justice also seeks to facilitate and highlight volunteerism and community service by Lawyers Club members. From time to time, the Board may adopt a strategic priority or issue, which the Fund for Justice should consider in both soliciting grant applications and recommending the award of grants. 

Limitations: The Fund only makes grants to organizations that:
  1. Have 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status;
  2. Propose projects in San Diego County; and
  3. Comply with Lawyers Club's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Policy. 
The Fund does not make grants to organizations that:
  1. Have a religious, political or lobbying purpose, except where these activities are incidental to the primary organizational mission; or

  2. Whose primary function is to allocate funds to other charitable organizations or projects.
