Philanthropic Community Joins to Support  Philanthropy Liaison in Office of Child Protection

On Tuesday, June 16, Fred Ali, President & CEO of the Weingart Foundation, and Chris Essel, President & CEO of Southern California Grantmakers, testified before the LA County Board of Supervisors in support of a motion to explore establishing a philanthropy liaison within the Office of Child Protection.

The motion passed unanimously!

The motion was sponsored by Supervisors Hilda Solis and Sheila Kuehl, and based on a recommendation in the 2014 Blue Ribbon Commission on Child Protection Report.

Ten foundations endorsed the proposal:  The Ahmanson Foundation, Annenberg Foundation, Blue Shield of California Foundation, California Community Foundation, The California Endowment, Hilton Foundation, The James Irvine Foundation, The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, UniHealth Foundation and Weingart Foundation.

LA n Sync was proud to support this motion.  We will continue to assist with the efforts to establish the philanthropy liaison position.
