The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF), established in 1995 and significantly reimagined in 2012, is a leading model for philanthropy and community engagement. With the goal of reaching all of Los Angeles and to be a model for sports teams worldwide, LADF is bigger than baseball. Focusing on education, health care, homelessness, and youth development, LADF has ambitions to be the city’s premier charity. LADF has invested more than $32 million in programs and grants to nonprofits, and fundraising has increased by 1,000% since 2012. In 2020, LADF was awarded ESPN’s Sports Humanitarian Team of the Year, Beyond Sport's Sport for Reduced Racial Inequalities Collective Impact Award, and the Aspen Institute Project Play Champion.
LADF is in the midst of an exciting period of growth and seeks a Development Supervisor to further develop and support the organization’s long-term sustainability while meeting annual multimillion-dollar fundraising goals in stadium and beyond based on LADF’s program impact and grantmaking objectives.
