It Takes A Village

Our Fund for Justice luncheon is our opportunity to directly support organizations that provide services to women and children in our community. I understand we are all very busy during the holiday season; however, many of you decided to take time to make an impact by joining us at our luncheon. I want to thank all of you. I am happy to announce that this years’ luncheon had the most attendees in the last five years. I also wanted to give special thanks to our Title Sponsor Hecht Solberg Robinson Goldberg & Bagley LLP, our Champion of Justice Sponsors Procopio Cory Hargreaves & Savitch LLP and Singleton Law Firm, and our three amazing co-chairs Jennifer Chang, Rebecca Kanter, and Becky Zipp whose hard work made the event a success.

If you were unable to attend the event, you can see the video created to showcase the vital work our grant recipients provide to our community here. For those of you that were unable to donate at the event, please consider making a donation to our fund this holiday season. One hundred percent of your donations support our grant recipients and allow us to continue to make a substantial difference in the lives of women and children within our community. Thank you for you continued support of our Fund for Justice.

Make an Impact

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.
