Our Mission

Liberty Hill Foundation is a laboratory for social change philanthropy. We leverage the power of community organizers, donor activists, and allies to advance social justice through strategic investment in grants, leadership training, and campaigns.

Our Vision

Liberty Hill envisions a society in which all people have a powerful voice, including those currently shut out of our democracy, people cut off from opportunities because they are poor, because of their skin color, because of their gender or sexual orientation, because of where they live, or where they were born.

We will not rest until society provides justice and equality for all.

    Who We Are

    At Liberty Hill our work is focused on Los Angeles County, because we understand that what happens in L.A. often influences the nation.

    As a public foundation, we provide critical support for social justice campaigns, and as a nonprofit, we lead research and policy initiatives designed to drive systemic change. Our training institute strengthens and connects community leaders and our role as a convener allows us to bring unusual allies together across our region to affect change.

      Building An Ecosystem

      Liberty Hill is an accelerator of community organizing in Los Angeles.

      We are uniquely positioned to bring together individual donors and diverse institutional partners to leverage funding for grassroots community organizing in Los Angeles.

      Currently, we facilitate and direct funding to the grassroots from three sources:

      Individual Donors
      Foundation Partners
      Pooled Funds

      An Agenda for a Just Future
