Philanthropy to Benefit Southern California Residents

We are very appreciative of the hard work our non-profit partners do every day. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing recovery, these partners remain very important to our community.

For current grantees, please visit our Resource Center for guidance regarding your current grant and reporting requirements.

If you are interested in applying for a new grant, please first consult the Grant Guidelines and Resource Center, as our guidelines, priorities, and process have recently changed.

The Rose Hills Foundation is dedicated to supporting partner nonprofits who serve our Southern California community and in particular, low-income, vulnerable individuals and families. We are very appreciative of the hard work these partners do every day. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing economic recovery, these partners remain very important to our community. Throughout 2020, the Foundation provided grant funding to support the immediate and ongoing needs of Los Angeles nonprofits in response to the COVID-19 crisis, continued its responsive grant making, advanced grant payments, and waived reporting requirements for a majority of grantees. In 2021, the Foundation continued its responsive grant making and is still accepting and reviewing grant applications.

As of June 2021, the Foundation’s guidelines have been updated. Please visit our Grant Guidelines and Resource Center pages for specific information on funding priorities. Although the Foundation unfortunately cannot support every pending and new request, we expect the Foundation’s strategy to evolve over time in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and recovery. The Foundation will endeavor to communicate this strategy via website announcements.

Please note that all Foundation staff are working remotely for the foreseeable future and can be reached via email. We strongly encourage organizations to visit our Resource Center before emailing staff, as the page has been updated to answer frequently asked questions.
