Spectrum of Change
November 26, 2018
I am pleased to share with you the California Community Foundation’s 2017-18 annual report, Spectrum of Change. In it, we celebrate the amazing kaleidoscope of Los Angeles County. Its diverse stories, backgrounds and points of view are all interconnected – donors, advisors, nonprofits and community members all moving together to address our greatest challenges and create a beautiful culture of opportunity for all Angelenos.
Our report tells the stories of individuals and organizations who devote their time, passion and resources to improve the lives of their neighbors. You’ll discover how students, parents and nonprofits came together to bring $263 million in funding to L.A. schools with the greatest needs. How one woman learned she could stand up and protect the safety of her home and family. How a new generation of leaders is shaping the future of the immigrant rights movement. And how a mother teamed with a community health worker to uncover and solve the root cause of her children’s breathing problems.
Individually, these stories are inspiring. Together, they form a picture of L.A.’s future – diverse people and communities working in concert to improve the quality of life of every resident. In 2015, we pledged to grant $1 billion to Los Angeles County nonprofits over the next 10 years. Thanks to the incredible passion, generosity and commitment of all our partners, we and our donors have granted $326 million to a wide spectrum of organizations and causes in communities throughout the region.
I, along with my Board of Directors and staff, thank you for your dedication and your partnership. When we engage with our communities, we gain the power to transform them. We can take control of our present and our future. We can make an impact on our region’s most persistent problems. We can build the Los Angeles that our parents dreamed of and our children deserve.
