The Venice Family Clinic is one of the 13 charitable organizations serving low-income residents in Los Angeles County that recently received a grant from the California Community Foundation.

The clinic, which provides comprehensive primary care services, received a $128,000 grant to help buy and install a new practice management system. The California Community Foundation awarded a total of $1.73 million in grants to the 13 charitable organizations. The grants will help support general operating expenses, advocacy activities, building construction and capacity building efforts. The awards ranged from $100,000 to $300,000.

“These grants will help prepare children for school and will provide healthcare, affordable housing and the arts to those who can least afford it,” said Antonia Hernandez, president and chief executive officer of the foundation. “To have healthy and cohesive communities, our most vulnerable residents must have their basic needs met.”

Founded in 1915, the California Community Foundation is considered a leading philanthropic organization in Los Angeles County, managing more than $1 million in assets. Each year, the foundation gives out more than $100 million in grants to invest in the future of local communities.
