Increasing Impact and Diversity with the Annenberg Foundation

Posted March 6, 2020 by Team LA2050

One of the best things about the My LA2050 Grants Challenge is seeing the great ideas you submit about making Los Angeles the best place to live, learn, connect, create, and play.

This year, these ideas will get even more support thanks to some incredible partners including the Annenberg Foundation, the Snap Foundation, and Second Home Hollywood. Our partners are contributing both financial and in-kind support, expanding your ability to affect change in Los Angeles.

For the past five years, we've proudly counted the Annenberg Foundation as a partner to the My LA2050 Grants Challenge. This year Annenberg will be providing $50,000 of additional grant funding to the winning organizations to support their efforts around diversity, equity, and inclusion. The recipients will have the chance to audit their board, staff, volunteers, and those they serve to ensure that diversity is present across all aspects of their work.

Past winners have used funds from the Annenberg Foundation to develop programs to increase the diversity of their board, conduct diversity and equity training for staff and volunteers, and develop policies and procedures to increase equitable practices in hiring and recruitment.

We're grateful to have the Annenberg Foundation as a longstanding partner in this work, and we're even more grateful for their continued commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in Los Angeles County.
