For the third year in a row, Everychild Foundation has pivoted from its innovative grantmaking approach. 

The group of approximately 200 Los Angeles-area women is dedicated to easing the suffering of local children, whether due to disease, disability, abuse, neglect or poverty. Founded in 2000,  the giving circle annually awards a single $1 million grant to one agency in order to fund or expand an innovative, replicable capital project or program filling critical unmet needs. 

But for the third year in a row, in order to respond to the ongoing impact of the pandemic, the women have instead shifted gears to distribute relief grants among multiple nonprofit agencies in the community. The change in protocol was prompted by the massive impact that Covid-19 has had on their grant applicants who have found themselves in the overwhelmingly difficult two-fold position of struggling for available funding resources while also witnessing an ever- increasing need for their services.

Instead of a single $1 million donation, four agencies each received an Everychild Foundation 2022 Recovery Grant of $250,000. Chosen by vote of the entire membership, the new grantees   that emerged are Abode Communities, Child & Family Center, New Village Girls Academy and School on Wheels. 

The women also selected another four agencies that each received an “Everychild Foundation Special Recognition Grant” of $25,000: Boys and Girls Clubs of the Los Angeles Harbor, 

Communities in Schools Los Angeles, Hope Street Margolis Family Center and St. John’s Well Child and Family Center.  

Everychild Foundation Founder and President Jacqueline Caster said, “As we have continued to witness how the pandemic has placed enormous burdens on so many Los Angeles children’s agencies, Everychild members realized that it simply made sense once again this year to help them address these overwhelming needs.  

“However, it has also been very rewarding for us to witness over the past two years of awarding these emergency grants, the long-term impacts they can create. Numerous recipients have utilized our funds to establish new virtual infrastructure to reach more of their target populations, and these new systems will last well past the pandemic.” 

Next year, Everychild Foundation plans to resume its normal operations of selecting a single $1 million grantee.
