Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $5,000 to California nonprofit organizations in eligible areas to address legal and social challenges affecting women. The funding source seeks to elevate the status of women in society and in law, including but not limited to, bias against females, awareness of domestic violence, and gender discrimination. Contributions will be made for research, programming, and education that furthers the funding source’s goal. The Fund only makes grants in San Diego County.

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.
