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.
One of the things that can help an organization succeed is access to space - for meetings, for staff, or for events. Our partner, Second Home Hollywood, is making space, beautiful space, available for select organizations. Once finalists are announced, Second Home Hollywood, will award $60,000 in donated space for co-working, meeting, and events to select organizations.
You know what's better than a plain old office view? Plants and hummingbirds at your window at Second Home Hollywood
Second Home is a co-working space that embraces biophilic design principles (that means they like plants). They've created the densest urban forest in Los Angeles, housing more than 6,500 trees and plants on-site, and they were recently featured in Curbed. Second Home also houses the Goldhirsh Foundation team! We recently took the leap and moved into Second Home's office space, and we look forward to having LA2050 applicants and innovators join us here.
So whether your team needs a place for a staff retreat or board meeting, a space for your employees to work, or a fabulous place for a large event, support from Second Home Hollywood might be just the thing you need to make your project successful. If you think your work could be enhanced with some access to office, event, or meeting space, make sure to indicate it on your application (question 15)!
We can't wait to see what you come up with! For more info on Second Home Hollywood, head to their website.
