Support Our Work

CaRLA is a very small, but very feisty team with goals of making California more livable for all, but we can’t do it alone.

In 2021, 97% of our funding came from individual donations from people like you. Your contributions help our work of keeping cities such as San Mateo, Huntington Beach, and more from denying housing.

Your donations go to providing salaries to staff to proactively monitor cities across the state and respond to inquiries from the public. You support also helps us support homeowners trying to build ADUs and small developers who don’t have legal teams but want to provide homes allowed by law across California with the following free services:

CaRLA is a 501(c)3 tax exempt non-profit. Your contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Our EIN is 47-5414850.
