I remember being a new Founding Member and thinking a lot about my daughter, who at the time was a two year old. I thought, ‘Wow, in 20 years, with this model, we would have given away 20 million dollars!’ I thought about the pride I could possibly have and the legacy our group would leave to the city of L.A. Well, the pride I have for what we have accomplished is enormous. It has far exceeded my expectations. Everychild has changed the landscape of grant giving. We are such a formidable group of women with such a highly respected vetting process that now even our ‘runner-up’ project each year has clout in this city. I will always be grateful to be a part of this group that is making such a difference for vulnerable children in Los Angeles.
Help Los Angeles’ Youngest Population Meet Critical Needs
Everychild is a group of passionate women dedicated to easing the suffering of Los Angeles-area children. The organization eschews costly, time-consuming fundraising events, focusing instead on results and leveraging resources. It does so by making a $1 million targeted grant to a single carefully-vetted project selected by vote of the entire membership each year. Funds are amassed from annual member donations. Operating costs are tightly controlled – Everychild pays no rent or salaries. Members are provided the opportunity to learn about effective grantmaking and about the critical unmet needs of Los Angeles’ youngest population.
Committee participation is optional. Everychild is designed for busy women who simply want to make a difference. However, the organization does provide a continuum of opportunities for those who do want to get involved – some with a large time commitment and some with just a bit.
