Fundraising & Aid

Non-Profit Arm of the Los Angeles Volleyball Academy

Thank you for visiting the online home of the LAVA Foundation, the non-profit arm of the Los Angeles Volleyball Academy (LAVA). The LAVA Foundation exists with three-fold purpose: first, as the primary source of need-based and program-based financial aid for the benefit of LAVA athletes and their families; second, to oversee fundraising efforts for all LAVA affiliates, to help generate those opportunity dollars utilized by our financial aid department; and third, to provide companies, individuals, or any other interested parties with an avenue for tax incentive sponsorships, donations, grants, etc, which can also be utilized by the foundation for aid purposes.

LAVA is committed to its fundraising efforts and is constantly improving its overall system. Thank you for your interest in helping raise funds for our myriad special assistance programs — your generosity is greatly appreciated.

DONATION CENTER - TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS

The LAVA Foundation was established to provide aid in a pair of areas: (1) helping youth athletes with the financial assistance that will allow them to play club volleyball; and (2) to help families in the community who have been hit with hard times and/or significant challenges.
