LLA students at graduation

Your support is so important to us

Life Learning Academy relies on the generosity of donors. We partner with public agencies, private foundations, businesses, and individuals dedicated to a vision of success for all young people.

When you give to LLA you make a profound difference in the lives of Bay Area youth. You provide food, housing, workforce training, academic opportunity – and, most importantly, a community built on nonviolence and radical love.

Our small size is our strength: It allows for deep and lasting change. When you partner with or donate to LLA, you become part of our community.

Thank you so much for your support.

Legacy Giving

Including LLA in your estate plans is a powerful demonstration of your belief that all young people deserve a quality education and safe and stable housing. Establishing an endowment or making a charitable gift from a retirement plan are simple ways to ensure future resources are provided to students that need it most, without impacting your current lifestyle.

Call (415) 397-8957 for more information about legacy giving.
