Fund for Justice
Share |
Created in 1997, the Lawyers Club Fund for Justice is our charitable foundation arm that serves to reach out to the community, in particular to serve "at-risk” women.

The Lawyers Club Fund for Justice is managed through a donor-advised fund at The San Diego Foundation and addresses, through nonprofit education, research, funding, and programming, various social issues present in San Diego County consistent with Lawyers Club’s mission. In addition, the Fund is utilized to facilitate volunteerism and community service by members of Lawyers Club and to bring positive public attention to the efforts of its members and lawyers in general in service to the community. The Fund represents a powerful and direct action tool for Lawyers Club to effect social change within our immediate community for the collective good.

Since its creation, the Fund has made 100 grants of $283,000 to 35 nonprofit organizations, of which approximately 50 percent support programs for at-risk women, 28 percent support programs for at-risk children and youth, 22 percent support efforts to combat homelessness. See past Fund for Justice grantees here which we have been proud to support.


Lawyers Club 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 facilitate education, research, funding and programming by grantees addressing social and legal issues related to the mission of Lawyers Club, to advance the status of women in law and society, including but not limited to matters such as the following:
  1. Domestic and sexual violence against female victims with emphasis on legal services, education, awareness and prevention
  2. Gender discrimination, harassment or bias against females; and
  3. The unmet legal needs of females, particularly programs that support and improve the administration of justice.
In addition, another goal of the Fund for Justice is, in appropriate charitable contexts, to facilitate volunteerism and community service by members of Lawyers Club, and to bring positive public attention to the efforts of members of Lawyers Club in service to their communities. 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 does not make grants or loans to the following:
  1. Organizations which are not 501(c)(3) tax exempt organizations;
  2. Organizations having a religious, political or lobbying purpose, but not organizations where these activities are incidental to the primary organizational mission;
