Planting a Better Future For All Angelenos

Invest in BLOOMWe believe that a better quality of life for all Angelenos depends on the success of our young Black men. Through academic support, mentorship and positive options, we can help their futures bloom.

When BLOOMers like Zakeer succeed, everyone benefits. The work of BLOOM and our partners Brotherhood Crusade and Social Justice Learning Institute are crucial to realizing the promise of our young Black men. The amount of money our state spends annually on prisons would pay for a CSU education for every single graduating senior in California.

And the price we pay today pales in comparison to the cost to our future. Writing off a generation of young Black men means writing off a generation of big ideas, of job creators, problem solvers and
transformational leaders.

CCF, along with our BLOOM partners and donors, understands that education is the antidote to incarceration. We see the unlimited potential of our young Black men. And we agree that education, mentorship and community support have the power to produce healthy
and successful young men who can drive the future of Los Angeles.
