LA2050 has a new resource for anyone looking for ways to do good in Los Angeles. The My LA2050 Ideas Archive launched its beta version October 2018 with a searchable website of organizations, projects, and ideas submitted through the past five years of the My LA2050 Challenge.
Since 2013, the My LA2050 Grants Challenge has distributed $5.3 million in grants by asking, “How can we make Los Angeles the best place to live, learn, create, play, and connect?” For each challenge, hundreds of non-profit organizations, government agencies, and private sector firms have answered with innovative ideas.
The website is a collection of information about the organizations, their projects, and in some cases, videos that highlight their work. Users can search by keyword, by issue area, or by goal category.
Searches reveal a list of matching organizations (non-profit, for-profit, and government). On each organization page, users can see pictures, connect with organizations through social media, and find links to get involved. Each page also includes every proposal submitted by the organization to My LA2050 Challenges throughout the years.
We've learned so much about the good work going on in our county that we wanted to share all of these organizations and projects with the public. We hope people will use it to find volunteer opportunities, potential partnerships, and causes they care about.
