Created in 1997, the Fund for Justice is our charitable foundation arm that serves to reach out to the community, in particular to serve "at-risk” women. Since then we have made 134 grants totaling $355,000 to 43 nonprofit organizations.

The Fund for Justice addresses various social issues present in San Diego County consistent with our mission and allows us to effect social change within our community for the collective good.

See past Fund for Justice grantees here.

Thank you for all of your support at the 2017 Fund for Justice Holiday Luncheon!

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;
  3. Organizations whose primary function is to allocate funds to other charitable organizations or projects; or
  4. Projects outside San Diego County.
To Apply: Once a year the Fund for Justice Committee accepts applications to review and recommend grants to the Lawyers Club Board of Directors for approval. Find out how to apply to the Fund for Justice here.
