About Us

About the SoLa Foundation

If you CAN see it, you CAN be it.

Working to end intergenerational poverty in South Los Angeles through community development, access to education, and economic opportunity.

The SoLa Foundation (est. 2017), the 501(c)(3) nonprofit affiliate of SoLa Impact, is built on a simple premise: If you CAN see it, you CAN be it. SoLa aims to improve the lives of South LA residents through access to educational, technological, and economic opportunities. We work towards uplifting underserved Black and Latinx communities using our four pillars of change:

  1. Access to Career Development & Entrepreneurship 

  2. Access to Education & Tech Innovation

  3. Access to Financial Literacy & Economic Mobility

  4. Access to College Readiness & Scholarships

In 2021, Riot Games partnered with us to fund the completion and operation of the SoLa Technology and Entrepreneurship Center. The SoLa tech center is now open to the South LA community with educational programming in technology and entrepreneurship.
