In 2006, the state Legislature passed Assembly Bill 2301, a law that allows the State Bar to request voluntary donations each year from attorneys who hold licenses in California.
The Justice Gap Fund helps the public in many ways, including:
If you are an attorney, you can make a voluntary donation to the Justice Gap Fund through your annual fee statement. Every year, when you pay your fees, you can add the amount to the total.
If you are a member of the public, you can send a check made to the State Bar of California. Contributions are tax-exempt to the fullest extent of the law.
Send the check to:
The State Bar of California
180 Howard St.
San Francisco, CA 94105
