Recurring Donations

“Never underestimate the power of a small group of people to make a difference.” Our organization depends on individuals willing to put aside the cost of a weekend dinner once a month to achieve social and economic justice in our community. Because they know the payoff is worth much more than a movie ticket or a few drinks on a Saturday night. Your recurring donation is an incredibly effective source of income for us: We rely on steady, dependable gifts that provide weeks, months, and years of assistance to children and families in need. It’s also a convenient form of giving for you: Your payment can be automatically deducted from your credit card or bank account, and you can change the amount of your gift, as well as the timing of your deduction, at any time.

Commemorative Gifts

You can recognize significant others, commemorate a milestone, or celebrate a special occasion, such as an anniversary, retirement, wedding, or birthday, when you make a secure commemorative gift. When you donate to SCOPE, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing your gift will not only honor the legacy of your loved ones, but also maintain the legacy of South LA, its residents, and a 20-year social justice movement that still needs your support in the years to come.

In-Kind Donations

We strive to make a difference by inviting our neighbors in South LA to join us in a range of activities and programs—from computer literacy classes to barbeques that encourage discussion about our shared concerns and plans for the future. To that end, we are always in need of resources from computer equipment and furniture to food for events and campaign materials. We are grateful to the local businesses that donate their time and services to SCOPE. Without them, economic growth and job stability would be impossible in our region; and without a thriving market, South LA will never realize its potential for change. Our wish list includes: Desks, chairs, computer equipment, gift cards for Office Depot, Target, Costco, and Smart & Final, office supplies, small appliances, children’s toys—both new and gently used with all parts and manuals intact. All donations are tax-deductible. For more information, please email
