Contributions to PJDC are welcome and essential to our work. We provide ongoing free support services to more than 400 people in the juvenile defender community with only limited grant assistance. Much of the work is performed by volunteer members. Our support benefits lawyers and advocates in many traditionally underserved kinds of practices, and this in turn helps the young people they represent in juvenile delinquency cases.

Once we receive your contribution, we will send you a letter for your tax records. Thank you for your support.
You are also welcome to send contributions by personal check for any amount to PJDC, 200 Pine Street, Suite 300, San Francisco, CA 94104.
Cy Pres Awards
PJDC also welcomes nominations for Cy Pres awards. Cy pres awards allow unclaimed settlement funds from class-action suits to be distributed to nonprofit organizations, and California law specifically identifies “child advocacy programs” as appropriate Cy Pres recipients. (CCP §384(b)). Please contact us for more information.
