The Los Angeles Radio Reading Service is project of Community Partners, a non–profit 501(c)(3) organization that accelerates ideas into action to advance public good.

Federal Tax ID # 95–4302067. Community Partners acts as a catalyst for community change, civic action and readiness by offering critical support, guidance and training to a range of non–profit organizations, initiatives, foundations, government agencies and social entrepreneurs with innovative ideas for building communities. Community Partners works hard to recognize, invest in, and celebrate the critical role individuals and groups play in achieving a just, vibrant civil society.

Conceived as a “foundation for emerging philanthropies,” Community Partner’s fiscal sponsorship program has grown steadily over the years to include an average of 145–150 projects led by people who reflect the scope and diversity of the Southern California region. Their connection to and understanding of the nonprofit sector led to work with funders and other institutional partners. Today they are engaged in over a dozen programs and initiatives through our grantmaker partnerships. From initial investments of $250,000, Community Partners has grown into a solid institution managing more than $42 million a year.
