A sustainable future for AfroLA is our ultimate goal. We’re actively applying for grants and seeking large-dollar donations to help fund our launch and initial operations. But, we’re also doing outreach to community members for smaller one-time donations that can also make a big impact. Our long-term sustainability is dependent upon philanthropic and grassroots support.

So, we’re passing the collection plate. 

Givebutter can accept one-time payments via debit or credit card, PayPal, Venmo or Google Pay. Please note: Donations made through Givebutter are not tax-deductible at this time.

Please remit checks, made out to AfroLA Media Group, to our mailing address:

5777 W. Century Blvd.
#1110 Unit #423
Los Angeles, CA 90045

To fund essential staff salaries and critical business operations, our immediate fundraising goal is $25,000. To reach this level, we need financial backing not only from philanthropic donors but also community members who believe in this work and are willing to pitch in to support it.

Our hope is that at least 20% of that funding, or $5,000, will come from the people we’re working hard to serve in our community. A donation that’s as little as $10 can make a difference.

Your donations will go directly to:

  • Building and maintaining our website
  • Our editorial operations, including fairly compensating the journalists, editors, freelancers, community contributors and staff that make our journalism happen
  • Developing programs that empower current and future journalists to better cover L.A.’s Black communities through education, training and (paid) opportunities

This is just the start of what we have planned and we are excited to tell you more about the coming work your donations support in the near future. You can follow our coverage and be among the first to find out about our future programs by signing up for our newsletter.

Will you help us reach our goal?

AfroLA is fiscally sponsored by Independent Arts & Media, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (our own 501(c)(3) application to the IRS is pending review). If you’d like to support our work with a tax-deductible donation, please make contributions through Flipcause.
