Thanks for supporting L. A. County youth!

The Sheriff’s Youth Foundation helps thousands of youth each year via programs that expose youth to new ideas, concepts, skills, and opportunities. The majority of these programs happen because of the support from caring volunteers and donors who contribute so much to help young people lead safe, productive and happy lives.

If you would like to donate to our programs, projects, and activities we welcome support of any amount.
