LBCF Community Endowment Fund
Long Beach is a special place … it’s a cosmopolitan city, a thriving port, a hub for arts and culture, a venue for sports, recreation and entertainment, an education center, a beachfront paradise, and a unique array of diverse neighborhoods. Your gift to the Long Beach Community Foundation Endowment Fund is an efficient, caring, responsible way to provide for the future of this great community.
Our community needs are constantly changing and the Long Beach Community Foundation Endowment Fund changes to meet those needs. Since its inception the Foundation’s discretionary grants have included the following areas:
- Arts and Culture
- Community Improvement and Development
- Diversity and Human Relations
- Economic Self-Sufficiency
- Gang Prevention and Intervention
- Health and Human Services
- Literacy and Literacy Training
- Parenting Education
- Services to Senior Citizens
- Violence Prevention
- Youth Programs
- Housing and Homelessness
Each year, the Foundation’s Board of Directors determines suitable areas of focus for discretionary grantmaking from the endowment fund. The Board searches for nonprofit organizations that can provide services to meet critical, new and emerging community needs. No attempt is made to replace ongoing public support for successful organizations. Instead, grants help local nonprofits leverage their resources in a way that improves the conditions of our great city. As the corpus grows, more needs will be met.
