December 1 marks this year’s Giving Tuesday, a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
Giving Tuesday was created in 2021 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past eight years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.
This Giving Tuesday, the LA Galaxy Foundation invites you to support some of our favorite not-for-profit organizations dedicated to serving the community and providing equity programming for Los Angeles youth.
We kindly ask you to join us in supporting these worthy non-profits serving the Los Angeles community through purchasing a pack of five (5) LA Galaxy disposable face masks for $25.
All proceeds will benefit the below eight (8) community partners. Additional funds will be raised through a LA Galaxy Foundation Silent Auction running from November 23-December 1.
In addition to your support, the LA Galaxy Foundation in partnership with Herbalife Nutrition will look to donate $1,000 to each of the below organizations.
