Agency Grants

Through its Agency Grants, The Riordan Foundation proudly supports nonprofit organizations that promote the education and well-being of students in Los Angeles County. These grants are offered to a small number of qualified nonprofit agencies by invitation only. Through this program the foundation supports innovative projects that are sustainable (financially and programmatically), scalable, and that do not duplicate services provided by other organizations. Ideal grantees will have a strong organizational structure and will be seeking seed funding for specific projects, rather than ongoing support. The foundation does not offer multi-year grants.

If you feel strongly that your agency falls under the foundation’s mission and focus, we invite you to schedule a phone call

Please be prepared to discuss the organization's history, mission, and project or program which you are seeking funding for. Note this is not a brainstorming session. Please see below for more information.
