The Los Angeles Times is proud of its long-standing tradition of helping those in need across Southern California. Deepening the commitment, The Times partnered with the Robert R. McCormick Foundation in 2000 and established the Los Angeles Times Family Fund, a McCormick Foundation Fund.
Through the Los Angeles Times Family Fund, grants are made to local nonprofit organizations making a difference for low-income children, adults and families. These qualified nonprofits provide life-changing programs that offer year-round education and mentoring, and opportunities for adults and children to learn to read, furthering academic and career advancement.
Thanks to the generosity of donors and readers, and the 50% match from the McCormick Foundation, those less fortunate in our communities have a chance to improve their lives. With all expenses paid, 100% of donations, plus the match, is granted across Southern California. Since inception, over 1,500 grants totaling nearly $40,000,000 have been invested.
The Los Angeles Times Family Fund believes in creating communities that thrive. Together, we are building a stronger Southern California for tomorrow by investing in our children, adults and families today.
