We care about LA!

Together with our Funding Partners, we are giving away $2.5 million to 37 local social impact organizations that are making Los Angeles a more thriving and equitable region.

Thank you to our 8,000+ voters for sharing the issues that mattered most to you and to our 480 applicants for submitting their best ideas to address them in response. LA2050 is so much bigger than us – it’s a movement! – and we couldn’t do this work without you. Over the next year, we’ll continue to share more about our winners, including ways you can get involved with their work. Stay tuned!

The LA2050 Grants Challenge is an open call for ideas to make Los Angeles County the best place to connect, create, learn, live, and play. Since 2013, we’ve granted more than $8 million to 110 impactful organizations with the help of hundreds of thousands of individuals casting votes.

For this year's Grants Challenge, we’re launching something new! We’re shifting the focus of our public voting from organizations to issues.

How will it work? First, Angelenos voted for the issues that matter most to them, online from April 18th to May 6th, 2022. Then, we announced the results and opened grant applications to organizations with ideas to address the top-voted issues. Last, we'll evaluate all of the proposals and award a total of $1 million to 15 organizations. Each winning organization will receive grant funding of up to $75,000 and partnership from LA2050 to support its efforts.
