Dodgers Foundation

  Grant Amount: Not Specified

Information

Since 1995, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF) has invested more than $25 million in programs and grants to nonprofits, including $16 million in the last five years alone. LADF’s annual grants program disseminates funds three times a year to organizations who fall within its three pillars.

In addition to grants, LADF activates with grantees, co-hosts grantee events, digitally showcases the work of grantees and conducts “Giving Moments” in stadium to further highlight grantees work to millions of fans.

LADF Pillars

Education + Literacy

LADF provides access, opportunity and innovation to youth at critical engagement stages – from kindergarten through college – through reading and STEM activities, middle school mentorship, and college scholarships and support.

Sports + Recreation 

LADF uses baseball and softball to build community and reinforce what it means to be a team. We create leadership opportunities and provide character development through increased skills, and positive and safe places to play for youth of all abilities.

Health + Wellness

LADF addresses health challenges that prevent children from excelling in school or recreational activities, including food insecurity, fitness and healthy eating. We provide tools and support efforts to increase the social and emotional intelligence of our kids.
