Hold an Event

Interested in hosting an event at or for 826LA? We can’t wait to hear your idea!

However, because of the high volume of requests we receive and the amount of time we spend working with students, we need to consider many factors when hosting or benefiting from events like yours.

The first step is to fill out the below form. We’ll review it to decide whether it aligns with our availability, priorities, and capacity at this time and get back to you as soon as we are able.

Please note that this form is for events held at 826LA only. If you’d like to propose an offsite event or fundraising partnership that would benefit 826LA, please fill out the Hold a Fundraiser for 826LA form instead.

If you have any questions, please email Thanks, and we look forward to hearing from you!

  • Because of evening programming throughout the week, we are unable to host events on weekday nights.
  • 826LA cannot always provide assistance in this way.
