About The GRYD Foundation

Mission & Focus

The GRYD Foundation is proud to support the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Office of Gang Reduction & Youth Development (GRYD Office) in its efforts to reduce gang-related violence and to strengthen individuals, families and entire communities.

Board of Directors

The GRYD Foundation Board of Directors ensures that we have systems and policies in place that support and advance our mission of reducing gang-related violence and increasing opportunities for at-risk communities in Los Angeles, while complying with the regulations applicable to 501c3 tax-exempt organizations.  With this in mind, we are striving to build a Board that reflects the diversity and cross-sectional talents of the City of Los Angeles.


We are honored to recognize the commitment our partners make to reducing violence and helping youth by displaying donor banners at Summer Night Lights sites.  We also highlight this investment in communities by highlighting on this website the logos of supporting foundations and companies.
