Fundraise for LA CAN Toolkit

Save Lives. Save the Planet. Raise funds for LA CAN this holiday season!

As this devastating year comes to a close, we know the challenges continue. LA CAN has stepped up, as we have for the last 20 years, to hold the government accountable and to offer new models for housing, healthcare, food and sustainability.

We need your help to keep this work going. If you’re a supporter of LA CAN, help us get the word out about our work by creating your own fundraising page. Use this toolkit below to get started! 

Why fundraise for LA CAN

LA CAN has been a center for human rights work for over 20 years. Our commitment to organize and empower our community renews with every challenge that comes our way. This year has been full of those challenges. Between COVID-19, horrific police violence and the compounding homelessness crisis, we have had layer upon layer added to our existing work.

LA CAN remains a place dedicated to true freedom not just in sentiment but in the actions we take every day to ensure our communities are not just surviving but thriving. From programs like portable handwashing stations to policy work on Measure J to creating a whole new model for housing with EcoHood, LA CAN is not waiting for someone else to act. We are moving forward with the work that needs to happen and to do that, we need your support.

I’m raising money for LA CAN this holiday season. LA CAN has been a center for human rights work for over 20 years. Based in LA’s Skid Row, they organize and empower people. They focus on building power in Black communities and with those who have been historically marginalized. 
 
LA CAN works at multiple levels from supporting folks one-on-one to advocating for structural change. Some of LA CAN’s current work includes: Sunday Strong and Wellness Wednesday community days, a Women’s Needs Assessment for Skid Row, handwashing stations for COVID-19, passing Measure J and developing a new, sustainable housing model with EcoHood. They have been instrumental in so much of the progress happening all around Los Angeles and they offer us a roadmap towards a better world. Please join me in supporting LA CAN in your end of year giving.
