Annual National Philanthropy Day

Annual National Philanthropy Day

The Long Beach Community Foundation (LBCF) annually selects a nonprofit to be the beneficiary of its National Philanthropy Day project. It is LBCF’s goal to provide project funding, volunteers and the needed resources to provide a one-day face lift to nonprofit organizations in Long Beach as part of the larger national initiative that is celebrated each fall.

The 2018 project will be at the Mental Health America Los Angeles Wellness Center at 830 Atlantic Ave in Long Beach  on October 20, 2018.

The Wellness Center responds to the needs of individuals with mental illness who have transitioned to independent community-based support from homelessness. This location serves more than 300 adults with mental illness below the poverty line annually. At the center there are opportunities for individuals to learn skills for self-reliance, develop natural supports, and access resources to help them grow in their wellbeing.
