Working on stories about Los Angeles? We can connect you with organizations doing important work on a wide range of issues, along with other experts we collaborate with and respect. Our team is also happy to speak with you ourselves, either on the record or on background, about big-picture topics such as the LA region, social innovation, social impact, social impact investing, collaboration, and philanthropy or about our work via the annual $1M+ My LA2050 Grants Challenge.
LA2050 is a community-guided initiative driving and tracking progress toward a shared vision for the future of Los Angeles, sponsored by the Goldhirsh Foundation.
Our annual open call for ideas to make LA the best place to learn, create, play, connect, and live with more than $1 million in grant funding up for grabs.
$7 million+ in grants given, 185+ winning ideas, 450,000+ online voters, and more!
The My LA2050 Ideas Archive is a searchable database of the 1,500+ crowdsourced proposals for a better LA received through seven cycles of the My LA2050 Grants Challenge.
The LA2050 News Archive features a collection of past news, feature stories, and press releases.
