Our Commitment to Supporting the Families of Our Community

Scholarship page

The Pacific Workers' Foundation is the charitable arm of Farber & Company and Pacific Workers' Compensation Law Center. Its focus and function is to deliver meals to injured clients, sponsor events that benefit firefighters and police officers, and provide college scholarships to the family members of those selflessly serving our communities.

Pacific Workers' Compensation Law Center and Farber & Company are pleased to continue to support the families of our community in the Bay Area through the Annual PWC College Scholarship Program. Pacific Workers' is the workers compensation division of Farber & Company Attorneys, P.C., and with over 65 years combined legal experience, we are proud to represent workers in Northern California in their pursuit of workers' compensation benefits.
