    Published on January 24th, 2020

    Peer Health Exchange Los Angeles and Focusing Philanthropy have partnered to launch a matching campaign focused on catalyzing Peer Health Exchange LA’s next phase of growth over the next three years.

    Armed with more than ten years of experience and rigorous third-party evaluation data, Peer Health Exchange will continue to bring a stronger program to more young people, partner to build a better model for health education, and build our capacity to fuel and sustain impact in areas adjacent to South LA, and Long Beach.

    Focusing Philanthropy and Peer Health Exchange are conducting a matching challenge from December 2019 to June 2020 to raise $75K for Los Angeles. 100 percent of the proceeds will go to Peer Health Exchange.  In order to fully benefit from and meet Focusing Philanthropy’s matching challenge, Peer Health Exchange Los Angeles needs to raise $50K. Focusing Philanthropy will raise a further $25K challenge pool –adding $1.00 for every $2.00 raised by Peer Health Exchange Los Angeles until the goal ($75K total combined) is reached.
