The Durfee Foundation is a family foundation that seeks to adhere to the values of our founders, Dorothy Durfee Avery and R. Stanton Avery, by rewarding individual initiative and leadership.
The majority of our grantmaking focuses on the Los Angeles region, where the foundation's history lies, and where funding needs are great.
We build partnerships with individuals and institutions that share our ideals of creativity, risk-taking, fiscal care, integrity, entrepreneurial spirit and continuous learning
We seek to build community in unexpected ways.
We make grants where our dollars will have the greatest impact. We hope that Durfee funds provide leverage for other funding opportunities.
Durfee is a patient investor. We are willing to make grants where the outcome may be hard to measure or not measurable for many years.
Above all, Durfee's focus is on extraordinary people who make things happen.
