The Annenberg Foundation is proud to serve as a partner for the 10th Annual LA2050 Grants Challenge, which has officially begun this year.
The annual competition aims to give more than $1 million to 15 social impact organizations in Los Angeles.
This year, LA2050 is offering in-person voting at eight locations across the city, including iconic locations like Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles Central Library, Randy’s Donuts, the Museum of Latin American Art, and more. See a full list and dates to vote in-person here.
The challenge is a two-part process. Part one seeks input from the public to vote for the most pressing issues facing LA.
Once the top issues have been selected, social impact organizations will submit grant applications to receive funding. A panel of experts will review each applicant to select grantees and runners-up.
Each winning organization will receive grant funding of up to $75,000 and partnership with LA2050. Since 2013, LA2050 has granted more than $9 million to local nonprofit organizations.
LA2050 prioritizes organizations that are working to make progress on its five goals of making LA the best place to connect, create, learn, live, and play. Vote here for the issues that align with each priority area.
