Shartsis Friese is proud to have been listed among the Top Corporate Philanthropists in the Greater Bay Area by San Francisco Business Times each year since 2007. Our lawyers and staff continue to support numerous organizations throughout the Bay Area with their contributions of time and money.

Shartsis Friese has established the Shartsis Friese Public Interest Fellowship, which funds a lawyer for two years at a selected community legal services organization in the Bay Area.

Shartsis Friese has also established an annual scholarship at Students Rising Above, which covers the expense of sending several  low income, first generation college students to college each year, along with providing tutoring, personal mentoring, career coaching, and job training workshops.  In 2015, five students received  the Shartsis Friese Scholarship.
