To help us determine if your group meets our criteria and has needs that we can help with, we have put together an application that you can complete online. Click on the icon below to access the application.

How to Apply

We Benefit Children awards numerous grants to organizations supporting children in need. Children’s charities throughout Los Angeles County whose annual budget does not exceed $500,000 and are in need of “Silver Bullet” capital items are eligible to apply.

Through our vetting process, we have the opportunity to meet the people behind these charities. Their dedication and commitment inspires us to do more to support our mission to improve the lives of children in need. Since 1989 we’ve provided more than 300 charities with funds to help purchase much needed capital items.

We are always looking for charities to partner with; if you know of any charities that meet our qualifications, please direct them to us or have them email us.
