TLC - An Investment In Success

Why Give to The Learning Centers at Fairplex?


As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (Federal Tax ID#95-4686764), The Learning Centers at Fairplex relies on the generosity of supporters to sustain its programs which benefit the community.

The Los Angeles County Fair Association supports TLC programs through in-kind contributions of facility and staff resources, as well as most overhead expenses, totaling more than $750,000 annually.
What that means is that every dollar donated from private sources goes directly to support our students!  Donors to TLC are making a tangible difference in the lives of our students, who participate in the programs at little or no cost.

Additional program expenses are funded through private support from individuals, corporations, foundations, government entities and other partners through contributions, grants, special events and other earned income.   All contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Donors can designate their contribution to a specific program, or make a donation to the TLC annual fund to support all of the organization’s educational initiatives.  Every gift matters, and your support goes farther thanks to the partnership of the Los Angeles County Fair Association.
