Your Support Matters. Donate Today!


Join UNITE-LA as we celebrate 25 years of cradle-through-career collaboration and impact in Greater Los Angeles and beyond. To commemorate this milestone and promote UNITE-LA's work to ensure educational and economic justice, we invite you to celebrate with us and show your support through a single or recurring donation.

You can also sponsor or donate to our 25th anniversary celebration event, Celebrating the Future of Collaboration symposium. The event will take place on Sept. 29, 2023, from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the Los Angeles Trade-Technical College. More than 350 regional, state and national leaders in education and workforce development will be in attendance, including several prominent keynote speakers.

Through integrated programming, systems change efforts and policy/advocacy, UNITE-LA has increased access to quality early childhood education, improved college access and success, developed pathways into high-growth, living wage careers, and advanced greater economic mobility for individuals from historically marginalized communities. Through the generosity of our supporters, we have:

  • Served more than 600,000 youth and young adults
  • Helped 323,000 students apply for more than $1.2 billion in free financial aid through Free Application for Federal Student Aid and California Dream Act completion workshops
  • Supported the development and implementation of the L.A. College Promise
  • Championed career pathways, providing 25,000 high school and community college students with work-based learning and paid work experience
  • Secured 40,000 job opportunities for qualified young adults
  • Launched the L.A. Compact in 2008 - a nationally renowned collaborative of L.A.'s most prominent leaders to collectively close education and workforce gaps caused by systemic inequities and racism
  • Co-developed and launched the L.A. Region K-16 Collaborative to align K-12, community college, four-year and workforce systems for streamlined pathways into high growth careers for students of color
  • Advocated for the successful passage of Universal Transition Kindergarten, expanded Paid Family Leave, Prop 47 and the California Dream Act

We hope you can join UNITE-LA and our many partners as we celebrate our collective impact over the past quarter century and help us boldly imagine what's possible the next 25 years.
