What We Fund

CCF is driven to find long-term, systemic solutions addressing the root causes of the most pressing issues facing Los Angeles County. Since 2015, we’ve given more than $24 million in discretionary grants, impacting hundreds of thousands of lives and helping to transform entire communities.

Fulfilling the Promise of a Greater Los Angeles

CCF began our second century in 2015 with an ambitious pledge: Grant $1 billion to L.A. County nonprofits over the next 10 years. We and our donors reached this goal early, granting enormous funds to thousands of organizations and causes in Los Angeles County. Whether for health or education, animal welfare or the arts, these gifts are improving the quality of life for our neighbors and creating a stronger future for our children.
