The Foundation places the highest priority on the grant proposals of nonprofits serving communities in the five-county region of Greater Los Angeles (Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura Counties). Agencies who serve the Greater LA region but are headquartered elsewhere may also apply for a grant. It is highly unlikely that funding will be offered to an organization, initiative or project that falls outside of this area.
- Grants are made to qualified organizations and institutions that are exempt from federal taxes under IRC Section 501(c)(3). No grants are made to individuals or to fund-raising campaigns.
- Particular attention is given to applicants from the Southern California area.
- Race, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation or religion are not factors in the consideration and awarding of grants.
- Grants are restricted to organizations whose overhead expenses are deemed to be reasonable by our Foundation.
