build strong communities

reducing violence and building strong communities in Los Angeles neighborhoods that have high concentrations of youth and that have been most impacted by gang violence, poverty and unemployment

The GRYD Foundation is an independent 501c3 public charity that collaborates with the City of Los Angeles and other agencies in our shared mission to create a safer and healthier Los Angeles for us all.  

Our mission is to reduce violent crime and to build strong communities, one individual and family at a time.  

Our focus is the Summer Night Lights program, a violence reduction strategy that provides extended programming during the peak times for gang related violence (between the hours of 7 pm to 11pm Wednesday - Saturday from just prior to the 4th of July weekend thru Labor Day weekend) at 32 sites throughout the City of Los Angeles.

Right now we are looking to expand our work with high school students in Los Angeles communities most impacted by gang related violence; specifically, we want to provide young people with positive alternatives to gang life and to empower them with the inspiration, training and tools they will need to secure a bright future for themselves.

Ninety five percent (95%) of our expenses are programmatic.  We are a GuideStar Exchange Gold participant (committed to transparency.)
