How do the Match Challenges work?

This year we are proud to have two foundations providing fundraising match challenges.  The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation will match $400,000 of pledges to benefit organizations working to end homelessness in Los Angeles County, and the Margie & Robert E. Petersen Foundation will match $350,000 raised to support United Way’s mission to improve access and quality of education opportunities for our students. A match for economic mobility is pending. 

 

What will our dollars support under each key issue area? 

United Way envisions a thriving Los Angeles County that is free from generational poverty, values racial equity, and where every family has a home, every child gets a quality education, and every person has an opportunity for success in our economy.

 

How UWGLA addresses each area to break cycles of poverty:

Before COVID-19 there were too many people experiencing homelessness, students attending inadequate schools, and working families unable to pay rent in our County. The pandemic strained our housing and homeless service systems, educational systems and schools and exposed the vulnerabilities of our working families and communities.

  • Homelessness: We are poised to turn the best lessons of the pandemic crisis into bold programs that complement the region’s approach to the crisis at every step: on the street, in the shelters, and even with the missing piece of housing construction.
  • Housing: We work to ensure safe, stable and affordable neighborhoods for Angelenos to call home.
  • Education: We fight for great public schools that serve all students and prepare them to achieve in colleges and careers.
  • Economic Mobility: We strive for an inclusive and fair economy with equal access to funding, opportunity to be entrepreneurial, and supportive entry into current and emerging industries.
