$1,000,000 to shape and build the
future of Los Angeles.

It's been a big year. More than 30,000 of you helped us craft the LA2050 Goals – a vision of success for the future of our region. The LA2050 Goals are now the backbone of our grantmaking, the metrics by which we allocate our funding and how we measure human development in Los Angeles. Together, we have effectively flipped the typical philanthropic model.

With the shared goal of a better city, this alliance of Angelenos who care about its future has proven to be engaged and powerful. Civic engagement is alive and well in Los Angeles, and you're the proof.

So with that, thank you for your time and thank you for your vote. Here are the results of the My LA2050 Grants Challenge.

We are pleased to announce the ten winners who will receive
$100,000 to implement their project:




“LA is about dreaming and doing things that other people wouldn't do. 
No one says, ‘We don't do it that way.’ There is still the spirit of the west... 
I think we have to build on that.”

—Ken Brecher, President, Library Foundation of Los Angeles

As always, we strive to continue to iterate and improve our process. We'd love to hear from you! Please fill out this survey and provide any feedback on your experience.
