The world is brimming with innovators whose ideas can shape our region and change the world. At the Goldhirsh Foundation, we identify the brightest emerging talent and give them the tools to best support their success.
We hold ourselves to the same high standard of the talent we seek to cultivate. We are a small team, passionate about our work in social innovation. We strive to manifest that beyond our investments—by creating events and mission-driven initiatives meant to bring together thinkers and doers across a spectrum of disciplines.
The Goldhirsh Foundation has been making grants for almost a decade, but was re-launched in 2012 in Los Angeles, where the majority of our grantmaking occurs. Since 2013, the Goldhirsh Foundation has conducted a large portion of its grantmaking in Los Angeles via the annual My LA2050 Grants Challenge. Browse the more than 1,500 proposals to make Los Angeles better submitted through the grants challenges on the My LA2050 Ideas Archive.
Global Green is proud to have awarded The Goldhirsh Foundation a Millennium Award in 2013.
