COVID-19 Crisis Continues: We Need Your Help!

The MFLA COVID-19 Crisis Fund launched at the beginning of the pandemic to support critical unmet needs facing Angelenos. We quickly deploy urgent funds raised through the COVID-19 Crisis Fund in partnership with the City as it responds to the pandemic. The Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles is an independent nonprofit uniquely positioned to enhance and support City programs where funding is needed to ensure we reach those who need it most.

This crisis is not over and we still need your help!

Join over 10,000 generous Angelenos like you to help us directly support the following:

Individuals & Families Directly Impacted

Direct cash assistance through the Angeleno Card program supported more than 105,000 Angelenos in need at the beginning of the crisis. MFLA continues to work with the City to explore opportunities to directly support Angelenos facing hardship directly in response to COVID-19 and the related stay-at-home orders. 

Other support has included expansion of childcare for frontline healthcare workers and support of domestic violence survivors and families as the need for services has increased during the pandemic.

Food Insecurity

The Fund has supplied home-delivered meals for isolated seniors in partnership with the City’s Department of Aging and provided access to meals through food-cards for victims of domestic violence.  MFLA continues to work with the City and its partners to explore opportunities to address food insecurity for those who need it most.

Support for Small Business

MFLA seeks to lift community resources for small businesses whose operations have been disrupted by the COVID-19 outbreak working in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Economic Development

Critical Protective Gear & Healthcare Equipment

Increased access to personal protective equipment such as masks, face shields, and thermometers as well as other supplies vital to ensuring the health and safety of Angelenos and those protecting them. The focus is on populations most in need and includes partnership with the Mayor’s Skid Row Outreach Teams and the newly created Civil and Human Rights Department.

Services for Our Unhoused Neighbors

Services and resources for unhoused Angelenos, such as emergency shelters, hygiene supplies, to support the needs of the city’s homeless populations.
