Culver City is a very service and Purpose Driven Community
Nonprofit organizations play a vital role in building healthy communities by providing critical services that contribute to economic stability and mobility. They also strengthen communities in other important ways. Frequently, nonprofit leaders are the voice of the people they serve. Culver City is no different. Though a mere 5.1 square miles long, Culver City is home to over 160 non-profit organizations. In short, Culver City is home to a very service-driven and purpose-driven community.
As it relates to the Chamber of Commerce, a third of the City’s non-profit organizations find a home as investing members. The synergy of marketing, alignment and platform serve these members well and provide an outlet to share the non-profits’ message and good works. From health and wellness-centered organizations (such as the Achievable Foundation, L.A. Goal, and Westside Regional Center) to education and safety focused (such as the Culver City Education Foundation, Mychal’s Learning Place and Walk & Rollers) to civically-driven ones (such as the Exchange Club, Rotary and Kiwanis) to experiential-based (such as the Wende Museum, Downtown Business Association, and the Culver City Public Theater), Culver City truly has a vast population of non-profits.
There are many elements that make Culver City a unique community. The location and proximity to LAX, the City of Los Angeles and the Westside. The strong local services, such as our police and fire departments. Our award-winning schools and engaged residents; and yet, the one current that seems to run through all of this is the overall commitment to service and servitude. It is the one constant that has remained in Culver City, regardless of the economic climate, growth and expansion, and will continue to be a hallmark for what makes Culver City such a beautiful place to work, live and visit.
For those that are new to the rich culture of Culver City, the next few pages should serve as a snapshot into the expansive non-profit community.
