Six local causes receive John Aaroe Group Community Foundation grants

In the past month, our Foundation awarded grants to six remarkable organizations devoted to fighting and curing debilitating diseases, giving young people a positive start, and supporting homeless women and kids in medical crisis. We are proud to be a part of their vital efforts.

Alzheimer’s Association - SoCal — The leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research, working to eliminate the disease through the advancement of research, provision and enhancement of care, and promotion of brain health. more »

Youth Policy Institute — YPI blends multiple funding streams and partnerships to saturate LA communities with critical services. Funded by a 2010 grant from President Obama’s Promise Neighborhoods, it’s now transforming Pacoima and Hollywood schools and communities into centers of excellence and opportunity. more »

Hold You Foundation — The Foundation financially assists families with children in medical crisis so they can Hold their children, their dreams, and their families together while healing. Help includes assistance with family expenses like rent or mortgage, utilities, groceries, travel, lodging, child care, and other urgent needs. more »

Downtown Women's Center — The Center works to end homelessness for women on Skid Row through permanent supportive housing and Critical Time Intervention case management to empower them to achieve stability and independence. more »

Pasadena Police Activities League — The League works to support youth development at an early age by providing a safe and stable environment after school to do homework, socialize and participate in structured summer activities, while gaining positive attitudes toward authority figures. more »

ALS Walk — The ALS Association is the only national non-profit fighting ALS on every front — leading the way in global research, providing assistance for people with ALS, coordinating multidisciplinary care and fostering government partnerships. more »

We concentrate our efforts on local causes and focus on four areas where we believe we can make a real impact: community, education, the environment and health care. As our ongoing contributions enhance the wellbeing of our communities, they enrich our own lives, too. If you’d like to nominate a charity for Community Foundation funding, please contact your local Aaroe agent.
