When Los Angeles welcomes a new mayor in 2013, it will broadly impact the efforts of our region’s philanthropic and nonprofit sectors, particularly our work on key issues such as education, social services, unemployment and city infrastructure. The Mayoral Candidate Forum on February 28th will provide valuable insights into what’s in store for our city for at least the next four years.
The Mayoral Candidate Forum is a first-of-its-kind event in which the candidates will address grantmakers and nonprofits on how they envision the future of cross-sector partnerships in Los Angeles. In the lead-up to the election, the forum will help illuminate ways for philanthropic and nonprofit leaders to work more effectively with the incoming administration.
This is an exceedingly rare opportunity to hear about candidates’ goals for the city and their perspectives on building a strong partnership with our sector. Los Angeles has emerged as a leader in innovative collaborations between city government and philanthropy; and the Forum represents another step forward for our region’s dynamic social sector.
Representatives of foundations and nonprofits are invited to be a part of shaping the future of Los Angeles by registering before February 17th.
Thanks for reading,
President, Southern California Grantmakers
