280+ New Proposals Added to the My LA2050 Ideas Archive!

Posted August 3, 2020 by Team LA2050

This year, we received 285 submissions to the My LA2050 Grants Challenge. Now, these inspirational proposals — including our 25 amazing winners — have been added to our My LA2050 Ideas Archive. On the archive, Angelenos can browse all of the proposals from the past seven My LA2050 Grants Challenge cycles and learn more about each of the 1,200+ organizations that have submitted.

We created the Ideas Archive to serve as a resource for Angelenos looking for new volunteer opportunities, personal or professional inspiration, or causes to donate to. It archives the ideas of the past, and points to the solutions of the future.

You can search for results by issue area, geographic region, or proper nouns. On each organization's page, you'll find links to their website, social media pages, and a list of the proposals they've submitted to the challenge over the years. All pages for active nonprofit organizations include a donation form. Since the Ideas Archive allows users to see when organizations have applied to the My LA2050 Grants Challenge over multiple years, it also tells the story of how their work has evolved in response to the real-time needs of Los Angeles.

Don't be afraid to spend an hour (or two) reading through the proposals from over the years and discovering more about the best and brightest in our region!
