Philanthropy to Benefit Southern California Residents

We are very appreciative of the hard work our partners do every day. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, these partners are more important to our community than ever.

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 and in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, these partners are more important to our community than ever. As such, from March 31, 2020 through December 31, 2020, the Foundation provided grant funding to support the immediate and ongoing needs of Los Angeles nonprofits in response to the COVID-19 crisis, advanced grant payments, and waived reporting requirements for a majority of grantees. Throughout 2020, the board also approved a number of new grants to social services and other organizations responding to COVID-19. Furthermore, the Foundation continues its responsive grant making and is still accepting and reviewing grant applications.

As of January 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. The Foundation will endeavor to communicate this strategy via website announcements.

Please note that due to state and local guidelines and recommendations, 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.
