Grant Focus Areas

Please be advised the Riordan Foundation has undergone a transition and updates to our grant initiatives are now available.

While we proudly support a number of nonprofit organizations that work to improve the quality of life in Los Angeles, very few proposals are approved without a prior invitation. Funding priority is given to organizations that fit within our mission. Unfortunately, we are no longer continuing the flagship programs: the Instructional Innovation Grant and the Recreational Reading Mini-Grant.

Please find below more details on our grantmaking Focus Areas: Pre-k-12 education, college success & workforce development.
