The LA84 Foundation

  Grant Amount: $10,000


The foundation welcomes applications from organizations and agencies throughout Southern California to support youth sports programs and activities. In general, LA84 makes grants to support program costs, sports equipment, and the renovation of sports facilities or refurbishment of fields of play.

We fund a variety of sports for a broad range of youth, primarily in under-resourced communities. However, in keeping with our belief in leveling the field, special consideration is given to two key priority areas:

  1. School-based Sports Programs – Grantmaking in this area seeks to provide youth, particularly in communities that are under-resourced, with maximum access to sports opportunities in a place where they spend most of their day.
  2. Girls in Sports – Grantmaking in this area is designed to increase participation as way to promote leadership through sports and coaching opportunities.

It is important to note that the foundation is not excluding any program area that we have traditionally supported in the field of youth sports. Rather, LA84 is building on 30 years of grantmaking, programs and partnerships in identifying these priority areas. We know that sport is an effective tool in improving the lives of young people and has important life-long impacts. Moving forward, LA84 expects to work more closely with grantees to understand their programmatic outcomes and successes to gain a more comprehensive picture of the impact of the foundation’s grantmaking. These two priority areas are where we will begin to further explore the power of sport as a tool for youth development in achieving positive social-emotional, health, and educational outcomes.
