Our Mission

The Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles brings together the best of private, philanthropic, non-profit and government resources to take on the city’s most pressing challenges.

The Fund reaches across Los Angeles, enhancing economic prosperity, government services, safety, and overall quality of life for all who live, work, and play here. It sponsors programs that address acute and long-term needs and insists on rigorous standards of measurable impact.

As mayoral administrations change over time, the Fund remains independent and non-partisan, focusing on the long-term health of our city and its residents—and always believing in the promise of Los Angeles.
