The Catholic Community Foundation of Los Angeles is the power of one and the power of many to make a difference in the neighborhoods served by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

We are a professional philanthropy management institution that helps individuals, other foundations, and other organizations learn about philanthropy and how to make informed decisions on managing and funding their charitable giving. We empower donors and beneficiaries to work together to make social and economic changes that improve the quality of life for everyone.

During this first year of operations, over $206 million in funds was entrusted to us to manage by 27 organizations and individuals, including $66 million that was gifted to us in Donor-Advised Funds and in permanently endowed funds. We have granted over $8 million to support organizations involved in causes aligned with the mission of the Catholic Church, ranging from education to social services.
