Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Greater Los Angeles Area, California nonprofit organizations for programs that have a meaningful impact on the local community. Funding is intended to support programs in the areas of education and literacy, sports and recreation, and health and wellness. Priority will be given for programs that serve Los Angeles County.

The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation's annual grants program disseminates funds three times a year to organizations who fall within its three pillars.

LADF Pillars:

Education + Literacy

LADF provides access, opportunity and innovation to youth at critical engagement stages - from kindergarten through college - through reading and STEM activities, middle school mentorship, and college scholarships and support.

Sports + Recreation 

LADF uses baseball and softball to build community and reinforce what it means to be a team. Leadership opportunities are created and provide character development through increased skills, and positive and safe places to play for youth of all abilities.

Health + Wellness

LADF addresses health challenges that prevent children from excelling in school or recreational activities, including food insecurity, fitness, and healthy eating. Tools are provided and efforts to increase the social and emotional intelligence of kids are supported.

Event Sponsorships:

There are limited funds available to support special events or fundraisers; where possible these opportunities will be reviewed monthly by the Grant Committee. 

In addition to grants, LADF activates with grantees, co-hosts grantee events, digitally showcases the work of grantees and conducts "Giving Moments" in stadium to further highlight grantees work to millions of fans.
