The month of November marks the beginning of the holiday season. As we begin to prepare for the holidays, we also think about giving to our favorite charitable causes. As you think of giving, consider Lawyer’s Club charitable arm, Fund for Justice, which supports local non-profits that serve to advance the status of women in society and serve the unmet needs of women. Since its inception in 1999, Fund For Justice has made over 148 grants totaling $395,000 to 45 local organizations. Past grantees have included organizations such as Girls on the Run, Free to Thrive, Voices for Children, and Survivors of Torture.
Notably, charitable organizations that work to redress issues affecting women are severely underfunded nationwide. Only 1.6 percent of charitable donations go to organizations that address women’s issues. We are proud that Fund for Justice has been a trailblazer in charitable giving to these organizations. Help turn the tide of charitable giving by making a donation to Fund for Justice and joining us for the upcoming the Fund for Justice Luncheon.
