Giving Tuesday is December 1st.  Amidst the conspicuous consumption of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a day to celebrate generosity.  A donation to SDVLP on Giving Tuesday is an affirmation of the true spirit of the holiday season.

To join the Giving Tuesday movement, all you have to do is make a donation to SDVLP on Tuesday, December 1st, or pledge to volunteer with SDVLP.  Your contribution will last long after the tinsel and wrapping paper are gone by helping your neighbors resolve their civil legal issues with the assistance of skilled legal advocates.

Below is more information on the many ways you can donate to SDVLP, but the easiest way is to donate online here.

SDVLP relies on the generosity of major corporations as well as law firms to support our efforts to provide equal justice to all.
Giving to SDVLP allows firms and corporations to make a difference in the lives of thousands of low-income individuals on a yearly basis.
We welcome the opportunity to partner with your organization to change lives in our community. Contact Cheryl Martinez, / (619) 235-5656 x 110.

Cy Pres Funds

Attorneys can recommend SDVLP for cy pres awards, which allow unclaimed settlement funds from class-action lawsuits to be distributed to organizations that will benefit or pursue the interests of the class.  As San Diego county’s oldest and largest pro bono legal services program, SDVLP is an ideal candidate for cy pres awards.
Cy pres funds make an enormous difference in helping SDVLP cover all of its expenses each year, which in turn strengthens our mission to assist San Diegans most in need of legal assistance and who are the least able to afford an attorney.
Thank you to those firms and private attorneys who have recommended SDVLP for cy pres awards

  • Cohelan Khoury & Singer
  • Kirby Noonan Lance & Hoge LLP
  • Hanson Law Firm

If you are interested in nominating SDVLP for a cy pres award or if you would like more information please contact Cheryl Martinez at

You can help ensure equal access to justice for all San Diegans now, and for years to come, through planned giving. There are various ways to make a legacy or planned gift.
