Mission Statement

Assistance League of Santa Monica is a nonprofit organization comprised of member-volunteers that assists children and families in the Santa Monica Bay Area through a variety of philanthropic programs.

Description

Assistance League of Santa Monica is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation of member-volunteers who assist children and families in need in the Santa Monica Bay Area. Since becoming the 4th chapter of National Assistance League in 1937, our chapter has impacted the lives of people in need in our community. We have 88 members who create, assess, and administer our philanthropic programs and fundraising activities. A social component is very important as our member-volunteers use their education and life skills to help their community while making friendships that endure.

Since 1937, the chapter has been helping children and families in need in the Santa Monica Bay Area. We work closely with the Santa Monica/Malibu Unified School District and local Los Angeles Unified School District to identify those in need in our community.

Our member-volunteers administer our chapter’s philanthropic programs that assist local kids with:

  • Backpacks with school supplies
  • Camp scholarships
  • College and trade school scholarships
  • Emergency school clothing
  • Puppet Shows on bullying and divorce
  • Teddy bears for trauma victims
  • Vision and dental care

The Thrift Shop is our main source of funding. The shop is staffed and managed entirely by our member volunteers. Donations are always welcome and are tax deductible. We also get funding from rental property income, the Night Lights Auxiliary annual Campership Event and donations from members and friends.
