STAPLES Center Foundation

STAPLES Center FoundationSince its inception less than 20 years ago, STAPLES Center Foundation has been dedicated to utilizing its resources to improve and enrich the lives of children and families by creating and supporting dynamic and life changing programs and services that focus on K-12 education; community and economic development and safety; health and social services and music and art education with a special emphasis on supporting low income neighborhoods surrounding the arena.

More than $10 million in grants and in-kind support has been pledged to support several local charities and community-based organizations with a goal of changing lives and saving lives. STAPLES Center Foundation works diligently to assist charities in raising funds, developing resources, increasing awareness, and highlighting their community impact. The foundation’s philanthropic reach has impacted organizations such as 10th Street Elementary, Inner City Arts, Read to A Child, Salvation Army Red Shield Center, United Way, Young Storytellers and several local hospitals, to name a few.

Building partnerships with the Lakers, Clippers, Kings, Sparks, and music recording artists, assists the foundation in creating once in a lifetime fundraising opportunities and experiences for our charity partners and community members. STAPLES Center and L.A. LIVE serve as the hub for community engagement during the AEG’s Season of Giving, and is highlighted by employee volunteer activities such as the annual Thanksgiving Day Fest, Service Day, and Community Holiday Party.
