The Fund for Change seeks to change institutional policies and practices in Los Angeles to advance economic justice, environmental justice and LGBTQ justice. Liberty Hill provides "seed" grants as well as grants to mature organizations with a track record of community organizing and policy wins.

In 2011, Liberty Hill invested $3.3 million in leaders at the frontlines of change, including nearly $1 million through our Fund for Change. That brought Liberty Hill's total investment in community organizing since 1976 to more than $50 million.
A recent study indicated that for every dollar invested in local community organizing L.A. saw $91 in community benefits.
Liberty Hill's Special Opportunity Fund provides tactical, quick-turnaround grant investment for organizations seeking support for timely capacity-building opportunities. The focus is on activities that strengthen organizational infrastructure and leadership capacity. Requests for up to $10,000 from the Special Opportunity Fund are reviewed on a year-round basis.
