support local community organizations



Our mission is to lead positive systemic change that strengthens Los Angeles communities. We envision a future where all Angelenos have the opportunity to contribute to the productivity, health and well-being of our region. And we believe that our common fate will be determined by how successfully we improve the quality of life for all of our residents. The impact we help create is of, by and for Los Angeles, because the community is our foundation.

A spark of hope in a heart can light a fire in a soul.

staff & leadership

CCF’s leadership team, Board of Directors and staff are among the most diverse of any foundation in the country. We are uniquely qualified and experienced to address the important challenges we face here in Los Angeles, and we support CCF’s long-standing tradition of excellence in governance, stability and fiduciary responsibility.


Our commitment to building a strong and diverse community is reflected not only in our work, but also in our staffing. We understand that our fates and futures are interwoven, so we actively strive to be an employer of choice – offering a competitive compensation package, worthwhile development opportunities and a rewarding workplace environment.

We are committed to the principle of equal employment opportunity for all applicants and employees, and we make employment decisions without regard to race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation or preference, gender identity, gender expression, age or any other protected status. We will consider for employment all qualified applicants, including those with criminal histories, in a manner consistent with the requirements of applicable federal, state and local laws, including the City of Los Angeles’ Fair Chance Initiative for Hiring Ordinance.


All applicants with an existing account should log in under the “Previous Visitors” section to complete/submit an employment application. 


CCF works with local and national media to offer spokespersons and subject-matter experts for interviews in English, Spanish and other languages. We provide expertise on a range of issues including the arts, charitable giving, civic engagement, economic development, education, healthcare, housing, immigration and more.

We can also arrange site visits to nonprofit organizations throughout Los Angeles County that are making a positive impact in our region.
