The LEWIS Registry is a Safe Communities Institute-led initiative that is sustainably run with charitable donations. To uphold the registry’s independence and integrity, SCI and its partners have intentionally chosen to not solicit or accept public sector funding. That’s why philanthropic giving is so important for this endeavor.

If you would like to support our mission, you can use this USC portal to make a secure gift. For more information about donating to the LEWIS Registry, please contact Sukhie Bal, Senior Director of Development:
