Every contribution goes toward educating, advancing, and inspiring the residents of La Puente. Our programs aim to generate opportunities for residents to connect with one another while developing skills and interests that will enrich their lives. These programs become a conduit for shared experiences and values that unite the community. By facilitating social bonds within the community, these programs will foster a connected and supportive environment for residents of the city.

The La Puente Community Foundation is working to make lives better in the community.  We need your help to make a difference in the lives of young people and senior citizens, individuals, and families.   

The Foundation seeks the generous private support of long-time residents, newcomers, businesses, foundations, and caring people like you.  Every contribution, no matter how small or large, is important.
