In good times and in challenging times, giving is always important. Outside of the mission to support important causes and our communities, corporate involvement can contribute to key business goals, including improved reputation and the attraction and retention of employees, as well as the obvious fiscal benefits related to taxes.
 
Here at the Los Angeles Business Journal, we take giving and the Community of Business very seriously – which is why we launched our Social Impact Cover series; a program that enabled us to donate more than $50,000 to local charities. We thank our marketing partners for supporting the series that allowed us to collectively create awareness, show unity and, ultimately, raise money for nonprofits in our community such as American Cancer Society – Los Angeles Chapter; Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Los Angeles; California Community Foundation’s COVID -19 Los Angeles County Response Fund; Greater Los Angeles African American Chamber of Commerce; Hispanic Scholarship Fund; U.S.Vets and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Los Angeles.


There are many other important and meaningful organizations right here in Los Angeles County doing incredibly important work. We have taken the effort to share some of the best of them with you in this annual Corporate Citizenship & Giving Guide special supplement.  We hope it serves to remind you of the needs that exist while providing you and your business with a resource to aid in the quest for partnering with the right philanthropic or community organization.


In this section, we also acknowledge some examples of extraordinary businesses that have led by example and taken the process of corporate social responsibility to the next level by making good on their commitments to their nonprofit partners.


Thanks are due to our section sponsors who make this volume possible and many thanks to you, our readers who have taken the time to consider the needs of your community.  


Best regards,

Josh Schimmels
