The Los Angeles Rams are seeking non-profit organizations, schools or other academic institutional applicants within the greater Los Angeles region for the 2016 Rams Community Improvement Project. The initiative was established in 2009  in an effort to respond to some of the community’s greatest needs and positively impact lives through the completion of the project. This year will mark the team’s 8th annual project and the first in the Los Angeles area.

If you are interested in applying for the community improvement project, please click here and fill out the application (Now Closed).  All applications must be received by Friday, April 8, 2016. Applications received after that date will not be eligible for the project, which is currently scheduled to take place in June. The chosen applicant will be joined by members of the Los Angeles Rams organization to participate in the community improvement project, which will be funded by the team. Past community improvement projects have ranged from building playgrounds to refurbishing a football field at a Boys & Girls Club.

The Rams’ community improvement project is the cornerstone volunteer effort of the team’s “Staff Days of Service” program. Each month, the Rams close the office and spend time volunteering in the community. Since the program’s inception in 2009, the Rams’ staff has provided more than 12,000 hours of community service to non-profits through the Staff Days of Service program.
