Our History

The LA Fund is positioned to lead scalable innovations that reach all corners of Los Angeles. Working directly with classroom teachers as well as district leadership, the LA Fund has a proven track record of creating meaningful systemic change in the second largest school system in the nation. From ensuring that hundreds of thousands of students have access to a healthy breakfast everyday, to providing life changing professional experiences for deserving students at leading companies, to empowering young women to solve the most urgent challenges in their communities, change is happening.

An independent 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the LA Fund is in a unique position to bridge public and private partnerships, to drive positive and sustainable change that will have a direct impact on the education of LA students. Partnerships are key to the LA Fund’s success, and the LA Fund works collaboratively with school and district leadership, donors, and key stakeholders.

“I want to applaud the LA Fund and Superintendent Deasy for leading the charge to make sure all kids
have access to a healthy breakfast that will jump start their day, and get them ready to learn.”
