Who We Are

The LAFC Foundation furthers our 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 our community by supporting critical programs and bringing the indomitable Black & Gold spirit wherever we go. By supporting the programming and infrastructure that allow young people to access our favorite game, we provide not only fun and physical exercise – but also critical mentorship and a pathway to lifelong success beyond the pitch.

LAFC Day Force for Good Fundraiser

In celebration of the annual LAFC Day on April 27, the LAFC Foundation is kicking off Force for Good, an in-stadium giving campaign intended to increase awareness and raise funds for the LAFC Foundation’s impactful work. Throughout the 2024 season, you can look forward to special messages from your favorite players and celebrities, generous giveaways, and more.

We’ve set a goal to raise $32,520 this season. 100% of these funds will be used to support young people in Los Angeles through our longstanding futsal court program, which provides local schools with spaces to play along with coaching support, gear, and a ton of Black & Gold love!

LAFC is more than a football club – it’s an invaluable force for good in our community, and the Foundation is the driver behind much of that impact. We’re deeply appreciative of the entire Black & Gold family for supporting our mission.

P.S. You don’t need to wait for a game day - donations can be made to the LAFC Foundation anytime here. Your contribution will help us reach our goal!
