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, Citi, and Second Home Hollywood. Our partners are contributing both financial and in-kind support, expanding your ability to affect change in Los Angeles.
We are thrilled to welcome the Snap Foundation to the team as a funding partner for the My LA2050 Grants Challenge. The Snap Foundation will be keeping an eye out for projects that develop pathways to the creative economy for youth in Los Angeles. Snap is interested in testing innovative programs, taking risks in funding new ideas, and investing in ideas that can be scaled.
So if your organization has a project that fits these guidelines, submit it to the My LA2050 Grants Challenge. The CREATE goal category is probably a good place to start!
Recently, the LA2050 Team hosted the Snap Foundation's Youth Advisory Council to discuss participatory grantmaking and this year's My LA2050 Grants Challenge. We were excited to meet some of the bright, young individuals interested in social change and to answer questions about our challenge. We're excited the Snap Foundation is adding additional funding to applicants to this year's grants challenge, and we hope this is just the beginning of a lasting partnership!
