News About our 2021 Grant Cycle

As child and youth-focused agencies throughout Los Angeles County continue to face enormous challenges with operations resulting from the pandemic, we wanted to let you know that our Executive Board has met (virtually, of course) to decide upon the appropriate protocol for Everychild’s 2021 grantmaking. Once more, we unanimously agreed to break from awarding our traditional annual single grant and instead will award 4 grants of $250,000.
Our Grant Outreach Committee will refer a group of pre-vetted agencies to our Grant Screening Board to conduct its process of ultimately selecting potential grantees. In lieu of selecting 2 finalists to present at the annual grant hearing, Everychild Members will vote on finalists after receiving detailed information on potential grantees.
While some of the finer details have yet to be worked out, we believe, given the enormity of the current crisis and how it is impacting so many children’s non-profit organizations, this is the right course of action. It is our sincere hope, though, that in 2022 the situation will be less dire and we will be able to resume awarding our normal single $1 million award for a single transformative new project.

Everychild Makes $1 Million in COVID-19 Emergency Relief Grants

Due the extraordinary circumstances facing so many Los Angeles-area children and youth during the COVID-19 epidemic, our Everychild Foundation Executive Board unanimously voted to adjust our typical grant procedures this year. Instead of awarding one agency a single grant for a new or expansion project, our 2020 $1 million award has been equally spread among eight worthy recipients to assist their operations in easing the suffering of children, youth and their families during this crisis. This is the first time we have broken with our normal protocol of awarding a single $1 million gift to one agency with a new dream project.
