The Foundation has an online grant application form. There are two parts to the LA84 Foundation application process. When you click on the link in the yellow box on the right, you will begin the first part of the application process. This will give you an opportunity to provide a summary of your program for the Foundation to consider. If it is determined from the Phase I of the application that the request meets the Foundation's priorities and interests, you will be provided with instructions for Phase 2 of the process. Please note that funding is not guaranteed at any phase of the application process.
Please carefully read the eligibility information and funding guidelines. If you have any questions, please click on the "Contact Us" link at the top of the application page or call the Foundation directly at 323-730-4600 to be directed to a Program Officer for assistance.
The LA84 Foundation awards grants in Southern California's eight counties: Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Santa Barbara and Ventura. The Foundation serves all of Southern California, but gives special emphasis to Los Angeles, the city that hosted the 1984 Olympic Games.
The Foundation seeks to serve the entire community, but gives special attention to groups and communities underserved by traditional sports programs, including girls, ethnic minorities, and the physically challenged and developmentally disabled. LA84 Foundation funds are primarily intended for the development of youth sports below the elite level.
The LA84 Foundation will consider a request from any bona fide Southern California organization devoted to amateur sports. For a complete list of organizations that have received a grant from the Foundation from inception to date please see LA84 Foundation List of Grantees.
