Foundation For Second Chances' Fundraiser:

Creating Brighter Futures through Second Chances

Foundation For Second Chances' Photo

THE STORY:

Founded in 2004, Foundation for Second Chances (FFSC) is a grassroots organization that serves youth in Los Angeles County’s most economically challenged areas.  Our mission is to utilize hands-on education, mentoring, health awareness and community service to maximize the potential of youth.  Since its inception, FFSC has served over 2,500 youth in South Los Angeles. 

In order to meet our mission and provide services in our community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support.  Without the assistance of community-minded individuals just like you, we would not be able to continue to serve the youth in our community each year.

We ask that you make a commitment to support our Annual Giving by making a donation. This year our goal is $100,000. For your convenience, we have designed a tiered giving options:
