The Lupus Foundation of Southern California (LFSC) originated as a small support group for local lupus patients, growing to become the Lupus Foundation of Southern California, an independent, patient-oriented 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We are made up primarily of volunteers, providing service and support for the lupus community in San Diego and beyond.
The LFSC is a member of the Combined Health Agencies commonly referred to as the United Way/Chad Campaign (designation number 5533). We are also a member of the Community Health Charities, and participate in the Combined Federal Campaign (designation number 8027).
