Become a BEST Friend.

Experience one of the most social and philanthropic young professional groups in LA.

Led by the BEST Friends Board, this dynamic network creates connections to our students, from volunteering during events with students and families like Community Jam for Peace to introducing them to artists, engineers and athletes.

BEST Friends organize fundraising events and raise awareness and funds through creative activations, peer-to-peer fundraising campaigns and getting companies involved.

Joining the BEST Friends network is rewarding and fun — for you and our students.

Thank you again for your donations and leadership in championing the 2020 LA’s BEST Friends leadership peer to peer campaign. Because we still don’t know what lies ahead and continue to navigate the evolving impact of COVID-19, the peer to peer leadership campaign will be postponed, resuming at a future 2020 date.

“I grew up below the poverty line and really had some amazing teachers that took me under their wings, and helped me along and on the right path. I wasn’t fortunate enough to have a program like this, but I really feel the LA’s BEST program makes all the difference for these kids. Having the opportunity to give back and make a difference in one (or even thousands) of kids’ lives is really important to me.”
