In addition, we are honored to recognize the contributions of distinguished individuals who unselfishly committed their time to make the Long Beach Martin Luther King Center, Inc. the viable organization it is today.  Without the sacrifice of dedicated individuals over the years, the organization would simply not be here.  We salute their individual and collective efforts to make a difference in the lives of others and the Long Beach community. 


For over 40 years, the Long Beach Martin Luther King Center, Inc. has provided educational programs, humanitarian support, and recreational activities for children, youth, and seniors in the City of Long Beach, most specifically for the lower-income families and children of the North Park area.   

As many charitable organizations do, we depend on gifts and contributions from our friends and partners to supplement our annual budget.  Each year we provide special opportunities for our friends and partners to give in a major way. Your help is greatly appreciated!


Please support our 40th Anniversary Celebration Fundraiser by purchasing a $25 Reception Dinner ticket today or consider one of our event Sponsorship Packages for a donation of $500$1,000$3,000, or $5,000.

Your gifts make a major difference in helping us meet our annual fundraising goal!  Please make a commitment today to become a monthly, quarterly, or annual supporter of the Long Beach Martin Luther King Center, Inc.  

Thank you in advance for your gift!
