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 »

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 »

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.
