Helping nonprofits empower youth

Our Mission:

We provide financial assistance to Southern California organizations that help disadvantaged and disabled young adults feel seen, heard and understood as they transition to adulthood.

In the face of financial struggles, learning disabilities and other obstacles, we’re here to offer a helping hand. By extending charitable grants to tax-exempt, Southern California-based organizations positioned to assist disadvantaged youth, we can channel our resources to make a real difference – and won’t stop till we do.

NONPROFITS: A brighter future can start today.

About Us

L.L. Foundation for Youth cares deeply about adolescents, youth and young adults. We are committed to supporting organizations that guide youth as they make the exciting, scary and sometimes lonely transition from adolescence to early adulthood. This time, known as Emerging Adulthood, is a uniquely challenging and formative phase in life. In order to make the biggest impact on today’s youth and future generations, we offer grants to Southern California-based groups with an emphasis on medical, mental health and education assistance. We may not be able to make the road smooth, but we can ensure that no youth walks it alone.
