Giving Tuesday Update


Thank you to everyone who participated in our Giving Tuesday match a few weeks ago.

This is our fourth year offering a match, and our LA2050 community continues to show up for our local nonprofits. We are ecstatic to share that, together, we raised more than $27,000!

2022 Giving Tuesday Fast Facts:
$17,000+ donated by 160 individuals
$10,000 match from the Goldhirsh Foundation
169 donations made
62 organizations received donations
23 organizations with two or more donations

Your donations make a real impact. Check out these notes of appreciation from SEE-LA and Al Otro Lado, the two organizations that received the most donations through this year’s match.

"We are so grateful for the generosity of donors and to LA2050 for their match. We are excited to use these funds to provide our unique STEAM culinary education classes to youth and caregivers across Los Angeles and maintain and enhance SEE-LA's food access and equity programs!" – Elizabeth Bowman & Cara Elio, Co-Executive Directors SEE-LA

"We are so grateful to LA2050 for including us on its list of organizations for #GivingTuesday and to the donors who made this campaign such a wonderful success. With your support, Al Otro Lado provides critical legal aid and humanitarian support for migrants, people imprisoned in detention, asylum-seekers trapped at the border and separated families. Thank you!" – The Al Otro Lado Team

That’s not all; with these newest contributions, we have officially raised more than $100,000 via our LA2050 Ideas Hub!

The LA2050 Ideas Hub is a searchable database of great organizations and bright ideas from all of the LA2050 Grants Challenges. The Ideas Hub includes more than 1,700 social impact organizations based in Los Angeles, working on issues from housing and homelessness to domestic violence, environmental protection, and STEAM education. While the Ideas Hub gets the most love during our Giving Tuesday match, it is available for browsing all year long. That means you can donate to your favorite organizations, or discover new ones, at any time.

Thank you to Pledge for powering the donation widget that makes the match possible. And, an extra special thank you to all of our donors!
