The L.A. Works team spends all year recruiting and leading volunteers to serve nonprofits across Los Angeles.
Your Gift to L.A. Works Helps Volunteers Work for Los Angeles
Why is L.A. Works considered a “Nonprofit’s Nonprofit?”
Because L.A. Works makes sure nonprofits across LA County have the volunteer force they need to accomplish their missions. We create programming for families, corporations, older adults, and Angelenos who have time to give to address the most critical issues in LA. Your contribution on Giving Tuesday will help support volunteer participation in the community.
Every Act of Generosity Counts.
The goal of Giving Tuesday is simple – it’s a day where people are encouraged to do good. Whether you spend time volunteering, take a stand on an issue that matters, help a stranger, or find a way to make someone smile, you’re doing a small part to make an impact. If L.A. Works has encouraged you to become a changemaker, please consider donating today to support our efforts in building a more just and equitable Los Angeles.
Volunteer Your Dollars on Giving Tuesday
Even if you don't have the time to give, you can donate and support another volunteer's effort in the community. On Giving Tuesday, help us continue to fuel the people who are powering our nonprofit sector by volunteering your dollars.
