Unity is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results. For the last 100 years, the California Community Foundation has brought compassionate people together to build a better Los Angeles County. We were established as a permanent philanthropic resource to respond to the needs of L.A. – now and in the future. CCF leverages incredible generosity by partnering with nonprofit organizations across the county that serve people who are struggling. From San Pedro to San Gabriel, from Palmdale to the Palisades, CCF is committed to improving the quality of life for all Angelenos.

As we begin our next century of service, our work centers on transformation. This is at the heart of CCF’s mission – to help create systemic change, tackling root causes while at the same time addressing current needs. The social issues we seek to address are complex. They require commitment through leadership, collaboration and compassion. They require resources to help L.A.’s nonprofit community better serve our neighborhoods. For people across the globe, Los Angeles is a vibrant destination where dreams can be achieved, a place where anyone can transform ingenuity and dedication into opportunity.

As you will see in these pages, making a difference is possible, and our potential to address the region’s toughest issues is infinite. Building a better Los Angeles requires contributions from every one of us. Every person has a stake and the ability to make a difference. Whether you volunteer or donate, your contributions are important. Everyday people can do extraordinary things.

We invite you to read our 2015-2016 annual report to learn more about our work and our strong stewardship of funds.

Join us in making positive change, now and over the next 100 years.
