Throughout the years, A New Way of Life Re-Entry Project has been the recipient of kind donations from numerous individuals and entities who have witnessed and embraced the value of our work. If you have given, we know who you are and we are forever grateful.
We have also received grants from the following organizations:
The Adamma Foundation is a private charitable foundation established in 1990. Adamma, of Igbo origin, means beautiful child; precious, treasured daughter.
Adamma’s mission is to support small-scale charitable organizations providing services to the neediest, most vulnerable, most disenfranchised people and populations of Los Angeles.
California Community Foundation
California Community Foundation’s mission is to lead positive systemic change that strengthens Los Angeles’ communities. We envision a future where all Angelenos have the opportunity to contribute to the productivity, health and well-being of our region. And we believe that our common fate will be determined by how successfully we improve the quality of life for all of our residents.
Californians for Safety and Justice
Californians for Safety and Justice, a project of the Tides Center, is a nonprofit working with Californians from all walks of life to replace prison and justice system waste with common sense solutions that create safe neighborhoods and save public dollars. Through policy advocacy, public education, partnerships and support for local best practices, we promote effective criminal justice strategies to stop the cycle of crime and build healthy communities.
Drug Policy Alliance
The Drug Policy Alliance envisions a just society in which the use and regulation of drugs are grounded in science, compassion, health and human rights, in which people are no longer punished for what they put into their own bodies but only for crimes committed against others, and in which the fears, prejudices and punitive prohibitions of today are no more.
Our mission is to advance those policies and attitudes that best reduce the harms of both drug use and drug prohibition, and to promote the sovereignty of individuals over their minds and bodies.
The Ford Foundation believes in the inherent dignity of all people. But around the world, too many people are excluded from the political, economic, and social institutions that shape their lives.
Across eight decades, our mission has sought to reduce poverty and injustice, strengthen democratic values, promote international cooperation, and advance human achievement.
Fund For Nonviolence
The Fund for Nonviolence cultivates and supports efforts to bring about social change that moves humanity towards a more just and compassionate coexistence.
Universal justice and peace are essential conditions for realizing individual and collective human potential. Violence is a dehumanizing obstacle to human potential. We recognize that violence can be direct or indirect, overt or built into social structures. Moreover, all forms of violence are interdependent and are best addressed in relation to one another.
By nonviolence, we mean a process of change that reflects today the new relations/new society that we seek to create in the future. This future is one of justice and peace, inseparable and for everyone. For us, the practice of nonviolence recognizes the interconnectedness of all beings, acknowledges the humanity of any opponent, and honors the spiritual dimension of human experience.
Goldsmith Legacy Foundation
The Goldsmith Legacy Foundation was created by Margo Laraway Goldsmith in 2006 to continue her life-long practice of philanthropy to women.

Liberty Hill Foundation
The Liberty Hill Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Sarah Pillsbury, heir to the Minnesota Pillsbury baking fortune, along with Anne Mendel, Larry Janss and Win McCormack, in 1976. Its motto is “Change. Not Charity.”
They have funded local Los Angeles organizations dedicated to environmental justice. The name of the foundation derives from a famous incident on May 15, 1923 when writer Upton Sinclair spoke to approximately 3,000 striking longshoremen at Liberty Hill in San Pedro, Los Angeles, California.
Serving California is a foundation committed to the possibility that we can build a community of empathy for those who are struggling and provide them with resources to transcend their situations.
Our programs place a special emphasis on ex-offenders who want to rebuild their lives, crime victims and veterans and their families.
We support a network of exceptional partner organizations by providing funding and other management resources to assist them in creating and expanding high quality, solution-based, transformational programs.
The Ahmanson Foundation
The Ahmanson Foundation, incorporated as a private foundation in the State of California in 1952, was established by financier Howard F. Ahmanson, and his wife Dorothy. Its corpus was augmented in later years by his two nephews Robert H. Ahmanson and William H. Ahmanson. The Foundation’s broad purpose, as stated in the articles of incorporation, is to administer funds for charitable, scientific, educational, literary, and religious purposes, all for the public welfare.
Currently the Foundation concentrates its funding on cultural projects supporting the arts, education at the collegiate and pre-collegiate levels, medicine and delivery of health care services, specialized library collections, programs related to homelessness and low-income populations, preservation of the environment, and a wide range of human service projects. The vast majority of the Foundation’s philanthropy is directed toward organizations and institutions based in and serving the greater Los Angeles community.

The Women's Foundation of CA
The Women’s Foundation of California trains and invests in women to become policy advocates and philanthropic leaders who strengthen the economic well-being of California’s women and their families. We want to put an end to women living month-to-month and paycheck-to-paycheck, never knowing whether one financial setback—a trip to the emergency room, an unexpected car repair—will push them to the edge of poverty and homelessness.
For over 36 years we have been a leader and trusted partner, activating our extensive grassroots and statewide network to shape the policies, programs and attitudes that elevate women and their families.
