California Community Foundation awards grants to 62 nonprofit organizations
Arts, education, health care, housing
LOS ANGELES, Calif.—The California Community Foundation announced it has awarded more than $5.6 million in grants to 62 nonprofit organizations in the Los Angeles area.
According to the foundation, the bulk of the grants were given to aid programs focused on arts, education, healthcare, housing and neighborhoods and human development. Other grant funds will go toward civic-engagement projects, scholarships and supporting the foundation’s El Monte Community Building Initiative.
“There is no more important time than now and no more important place than L.A. to support nonprofit organizations, an under-appreciated segment of our community that is increasingly pressed to provide services and programs not available elsewhere,” said Antonia Hernandez, CEO and president of the foundation. “Supporting nonprofits has always been part of the mission of L.A.’s community foundation, and will remain so.”
A complete list of the grant recipients is available online at www.calfund.org.
