Street by Street, Block by Block, One by One, LAFC is committed to being a force for good in Los Angeles. LAFC is dedicated to using the beautiful game of soccer as a vehicle for change.
The LAFC Foundation furthers the Club’s mission of uniting the world’s city through the world’s game, bringing joy to people, and being a force for good in their community by supporting critical programs and bringing the indomitable Black & Gold spirit wherever they go.
Work in Action
The LAFC does work in many ways. They build futsal courts and use these play spaces as a jumping off point for deeper impact, including coaching and mentoring. Their stadium serves as an invaluable community resource, hosting everything from vaccination pop-ups and blood drives to food banks and back-to-school fundraisers. They also use the power of soccer for good, welcoming their partners into their stadium and the joy that comes with being part of the Black & Gold community.
Programming & Education
Summer Book Club: The Los Angeles Football Club and University of Phoenix invite students in the Greater Los Angeles Area to read their way to the stadium. As a part of LAFC’s Summer Book Club, students must read one (1) book and write an essay.
At Home Activities: This program allows kids and adults to download free activities from the team’s website to keep everyone busy during times of Covid-19.
