LPFI is thrilled to announce the receipt of a generous $200,000 grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation. This multi-year grant was awarded in support of our SMASH programs at USC and UCLA. With this funding, LPFI aims to expand academic year offerings and triple the number of Southern California scholars served over the next two years.
Executive Director, Jarvis Sulcer responded to the announcement, stating:
“We couldn’t be more honored to have the W.M. Keck Foundation’s support. We know SMASH works and knowing that the W.M. Keck foundation sees the same value in the work we’re doing is inspiring and motivating. This gift will go an incredibly long way in expanding the SMASH program at both UCLA and USC. Our scholars and families will be so excited to hear the great news.”
