Los Angeles Grantees

We want to make it easier for folks across the state to engage, connect and see us at work.

We're Celebrating 25 Years, and We’ve Moved to Downtown LA

We’ve moved our headquarters from Woodland Hills, our home for 25 years, to downtown Los Angeles. Why? We want to make it easier for folks across the state to engage, connect and see us at work.

Since our founding in 1992, our work has focused on grantmaking to improve the health and wellness of underserved communities across California. Grantmaking is critical. But, considering the times, it's not enough.

The focus of our work as a health funder has not changed. But our grantees have told us they want more from us — they want us to raise our voices to help further progress on the issues that we’re funding. We’ve heard them, and that’s why we’re raising our voice, expressing our values, and making mission-related investments to leverage all of our resources to have greater impact in advancing and sustaining health and wellness for Californians.

Over the coming months, we'll share stories that honor the people who got us here, and share the “Aha!” moments that both changed and inspired us as grantmakers. We’ll also share our vision for our future, and the work that we will do with you, as we step into the next 25 years.
