We are pleased to announce that SELA has multiple winners!

AltaMed is able to fully-fund the top two finalists based on their combined judging panel and online vote totals.

Congratulations to all who participated in AltaMed’s Grow Together SELA campaign!

From its inception, the Grow Together Match Program was created to support AltaMed’s mission of eliminating disparities and improving healthy lifestyles in South East Los Angeles (SELA).

We have continually been inspired by the focus and energy of the 19 project applications, the five finalists, to the two-match grant winners.

We are looking forward sharing the winner’s project’s progress and impact.

EVERYONE IS A WINNER as we work together for SELA.
