Centinela Valley Medical and Community Funds
CCF established the Centinela Medical and Community Fund and the Centinela Medical Care Fund in 1999 to benefit residents in the Centinela Valley. These funds were created by a more than $50 million trust created from the sale of Centinela Hospital Medical Center to a for-profit corporation.
The goal of the two funds is to promote and improve the health and quality of life of children and adults living in the Centinela Valley – Inglewood, Hawthorne, Lennox, Los Angeles, El Segundo, Watts, Compton and Lawndale. The funds have since granted approximately $50 million to eligible hospitals and other community-based organizations providing healthcare, medically-related services and health education to economically disadvantaged residents. Grants are made for core operating, program, project or capacity building support.
The foundation focuses on grants to organizations that address the following topics:
- Increasing integration of medical, dental, vision, mental health and substance use prevention, care and treatment services
- Facilitating cross-sector and regional systems collaboration among L.A. County public sector partners, nonprofit hospital/health systems, other nonprofits, and community partners to address the root causes of racial/ethnic health disparities including but not limited to immigration status.
- Supporting health policy/advocacy efforts that promote universal access to and utilization of health coverage, services and other public benefits
- At least 90 percent of individuals who would be served by the proposed program must reside in these zip codes: 90001, 90002, 90003, 90008, 90011, 90016, 90018, 90037, 90043, 90044, 90045, 90047, 90059, 90061, 90062, 90220, 90245, 90249, 90250, 90260, 90301, 90302, 90303, 90304 and 90305.
