Mission Statement

Ebell Friends is a Section 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity whose charitable purpose is to provide support for the preservation, restoration and maintenance of the historic Ebell of Los Angeles’ campus, grounds, collections and the Wilshire Ebell Theatre; as well as for the philanthropic work of The Ebell of Los Angeles through its Rest Cottage Association and The Ebell Scholarship Program and programs which educate and serve the community.

Relationship with The Ebell of Los Angeles

The historic Ebell facilities are a treasure to the Los Angeles community, and require substantial commitment and funding to maintain them for present-day use by our members and the greater Los Angeles community.  To that end, Ebell Friends was established as a non-profit public charity organized under the aegis of The Ebell of Los Angeles.  The goal of our all-volunteer organization is to raise funds through tax exempt donations and private foundations to specifically support the cost of the planning, restoration and preserving our historic facilities.
