Frequently asked questions...
Handpicked nonprofits must have 501(c)3 nonprofit status and serve the local Los Angeles community. We look for fiscal responsibility (with at least 70% of funding going to program costs), and we research the organization's reputation in the community. We recommend researching nonprofits at sites such as Charity Navigator and Guide Star, but many local nonprofits doing great work in the LA area are not reviewed there.
As many as you like. Please refer only those services you have used and can recommend without reservation.
If there's a local nonprofit that you would like to see benefit from this program, you can call us or provide us with the organization's contact info via the 'refer a service' form.
Supporting local nonprofits is central to our mission. Since our first edition in 2005 we’ve donated free pages of advertising in our handbooks to locally based nonprofit organizations, like Heal the Bay, TreePeople, the Theodore Payne Foundation and Habitat for Humanity. We provide these organizations with an opportunity to educate our readers about ways we might all improve our impact on the local ecology—both environmentally and socially. Handpicked nonprofits do not pay for the promotional services offered by neighbor2neighbor.
