Celebrating the confluence of human experience through participatory grantmaking in the arts, media, and education for over a decade.

Exploring and modeling new practices in philanthropy with disruptive, creative, and catalytic potential.

Welcome to MOZAIK! For over a decade, MOZAIK (formerly, the Neda Nobari Foundation) has worked toward social and environmental justice by seeding over 200 grassroots organizations, through $10M in philanthropic support, for the inception of arts, education, media, environment and film initiatives, internationally, nationally, and across California. We have always worked to align our resources with our values while fostering a full and authentic expression of our passions and purpose.

As the stewards of an organization dedicated to democratizing philanthropy, we’ve been thinking about what MOZAIK can do at this time of global crisis. We are now partnering with the California Community Foundation’s COVID-19 LA County Response Fund to address the most immediate emerging needs of our region’s most vulnerable residents—from mitigation to eventual recovery. This new fund will support the community needs identified by our local partners in health, housing, education, and immigration, and will aid impacted individuals through CCF’s Pass It Along Fund

Although all in-person gatherings are postponed until further notice, MOZAIK will be curating a series of online resources and tools, starting with a community-assembled list of emergency relief funds and social safety net services for individuals, nonprofits, and small-businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic across the State of California, and nationally. Access the COVID-19 Social Safety Net Resource Hub here.

We look forward to sharing more with you in the coming weeks.

Keep well, 

From all of us at MOZAIK
