We seek innovative partners, and accept applications from potential grantees by invitation only. We prioritize organizations and initiatives that focus on vulnerable children, transition age youth, and families in LA County, and work to foster long-term, deeply supportive relationships with our collaborators.

On occasion, we will accept submissions from organizations with unique and compelling proposals. Please see below for more information, and a link to the Grantee Application Portal.


Specialty Family Foundation (SFF) believes in protecting the rights and dignity of all persons. We are committed to preventing abuse and promoting the safety, protection, well-being and development of children and vulnerable adults. Starting in January, 2023 SFF will require grantees to have a Safeguarding Policy in place to be eligible for funding.


Specialty Family Foundation acknowledges the existence of systemic racism and seeks to understand where we have been implicit and explicit in its continuation. The Foundation is currently undergoing a guided Board and staff anti-racist learning process, which will inform and shape our internal and external policies and practices.
