For more than 100 years, the California Community Foundation (CCF) has worked to transform generosity into impact and create a stronger future for Los Angeles County. Working closely with donors, nonprofits and community partners, we seek to change systems, address root causes and improve the quality of life for all L.A. residents, especially the most vulnerable.

Since 2000, we and our donors have granted more than $3 billion, transforming communities in Los Angeles and across the globe. CCF is home to more than 1,600 funds, with assets of nearly $1.7 billion.

Every dollar we give through our discretionary grantmaking programs represents a donor's legacy and a dream for lasting change. Focusing on education, health, housing and immigration, we seek to empower and uplift the communities we serve.
