The Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles, an institution established in 1954 that ranks among the 12 largest philanthropic groups in LA, announced today $200,000 in grants to gang-intervention groups, reports the Daily News.

"The foundation is committed to supporting issues of vital importance to the community at large and chose to focus our General Community Grants this year on gang prevention and intervention," said President and Chief Executive Officer Marvin I. Schotland in the Daily News.

Notes DN, Schotland believes the grant dollars will have an impact on gang related issues "given the groundwork that has been laid through the dedication of dollars and hard work by others in both the public and private sectors."
