About

Pay It Forward for a Better Los Angeles is a non-profit built on the belief that a little kindness goes a long way. We believe in the power of our community, acting as a hub in the formation of coalitions to empower our youth to realize their full potential and nurture a culture of investment in our future. Pay It Forward for a Better L.A. believes there is a path to a solution. Working with partners such as non-profits, local businesses and corporations, and independent donors and volunteers, Pay It Forward endeavors to provide much-needed resources such as books, toys, clothing, and sports equipment, as well as services such as coaching, on-the-job training in vocational trades, and supplemental educational opportunities. Eliminating unnecessary waste by accepting donations of unwanted goods from individuals, businesses, and partner non-profits is yet another method of providing for underserved communities at minimal cost.
