About the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation

Our Mission

Harnessing the power of the Dodger brand and a passionate fan base, LADF works to significantly impact underserved youth in some of the most challenged neighborhoods of Los Angeles. LADF administers direct programs serving youth and communities at large and provides grants to local nonprofit  organizations. LADF is focused on finding innovative ways to create opportunities for children through programs that engage with kids in sports, helps kids stay active and promote academic success. With the support of partners, stakeholders and fans, LADF produces incredible results on fields, in classrooms and at recreation centers.

Our Visions

The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation envisions a city where every young Angeleno, in every neighborhood, can thrive.

Pillars

Education + Literacy
LADF provides access, opportunity and innovation to youth at critical engagement stages – from kindergarten through college – through reading activities, middle school mentorship, and  college scholarships and support.

Sports + Recreation
LADF uses baseball and softball to build community and reinforce what it means to be a team. We create leadership opportunities and provide character development through increased skills, and positive and safe places to play for youth of all abilities.

Health + Wellness
LADF addresses health challenges that prevent children from excelling in school or recreational activities, including food insecurity, fitness and healthy eating. We provide tools and support efforts to increase the social and emotional intelligence of our kids.
