Our Mission

We are a charitable trust affiliated with the San Diego Law Library, San Diego County’s free public law library. Our sole mission is to aid us in our efforts to provide access to justice through our many resources and programs. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization established for scientific and educational purposes by the IRS.

The Foundation was created in November 1961. Foundation contributions have funded many books, services, and technology at the Law Library. The Foundation has expended over fifty special purpose funds, given by donors for specific purposes or practice areas.
