Funding Opportunities. LA Community members. What about other city locations?

Sports organizations in your community may offer opportunities in major cities (LA, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, Miami, D.C., Baltimore, New York, Boston, etc.).

If communities of color artists and sports figures come from those communities, what better way to give back to community organizations doing the work, taking actions to address issues in their community.

Check out your local sports team in baseball, football, soccer, hockey, etc.

Don’t forget the other major area of music & entertainment that have established foundations to give back to the community in good times, and bad when disasters strike.

BEMA International

Established in 1995, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation focuses on underserved communities’ most pressing problems.

To that end, LADF invites applications from Los Angeles-area organizations working in the areas of education, health care, homelessness, and social justice in Los Angeles County. The geographic priority is LA County.

Applicants must be tax-exempt as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and not a private foundation as defined in section 509(a) of that code and must be in the Greater Los Angeles area. 

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation website.
