What we do here matters

Your support matters

What we do here matters—for our patients, our community of South LA, and for all of Los Angeles. You can be a part of what we do everyday.

The MLK Community Health Foundation is dedicated to raising private funds for the hospital.

Through our charitable foundation, you can:

  • Make a gift to thank a nurse or doctor who provided your family with excellent care
  • Join Advocates and Dream society
  • Get access to behind-the-scenes hospital tours as part of our Advocates network
  • Get information about events throughout the year

Visit our foundation's website at mlk-chf.org to learn more about our work and how to get involved.
