Our Foundational Principles

The California Community Foundation (CCF) is a vibrant and enduring resource committed to fulfilling the promise of Los Angeles County.

We are steadfast advocates for those who struggle.
We are trusted stewards of charitable passions.
And we are thoughtful investors in systemic change.

We understand the unique needs and remarkable potential of L.A.’s rich diversity. We know from experience that ordinary people can accomplish extraordinary things. And we realize that together we are stronger.

We believe a brighter future is achievable.
We believe everyone has something of value to contribute.
And we believe the common good is our common ground.

We are proud of our century of service.
We are excited about what is possible when we collaborate to create a better tomorrow for all of L.A.’s residents.

And we invite you to join us in building Los Angeles together.
