Los Angeles-Area Synergy Abounds for the Ayrshire Foundation

The Ayrshire Foundation was founded in 1998 by James N. Gamble (the great grandson of the founder of Procter & Gamble) and his family in order to broaden the scope of their already-established personal philanthropy. The foundation focuses its efforts on three locations where Gamble and his family have community ties, including the San Gabriel Valley—and by extension, the larger Los Angeles area.

The foundation views philanthropy as investment in world betterment, and spreads its wealth across a wide range of opportunities to support change: youth, the elderly and disabled, science and the environment, healthcare, and community culture. The Ayrshire Foundation likes to be synergistic about this—the more opportunities to intersect its arenas of giving, the better.

Examples of granting synergy in the San Gabriel Valley and Los Angeles abound:

Youth with Community Culture:

Youth with Elderly & Disabled:

Youth with Science & the Environment:

Healthcare with Elderly & Disabled:
