LAICCC alum Su Grossman on what
prompted her generous donation to
​our Cultural Legacy fund campaign

The Los Angeles Inner City Cultural Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation and is not organized for the private gain of any person. It is organized
under the Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation Law for public and charitable purposes. Contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

ICCC alum Su Grossman made a generous donation to support our Cultural Legacy Project fundraising campaign even before the campaign had officially begun. Here's her explanation:

"I met Jack [C. Bernard Jackson] when I was a student in UCLA's Dance Department....1966. Simply put, he changed my life (forever the better) in more ways than I can begin to express. Elaine Kashiki, Jack's assistant for many years, said to me something to the effect that 'I think many people would lie down on railroad tracks for him.' I would have."

Your tax-deductible donation helps us build for the future. You'll support both the Cultural Legacy Project's acquisition of a temporary space to house, inventory, catalogue, digitize and present 55 years of archival materials, and completion of the design for the new Los Angeles Inner City Cultural Center and C. Bernard Jackson Memorial Library we plan to build in South Los Angeles. The latter will be the first-ever fully functional multi-cultural, multi-ethnic and multi-racial cultural center and library of this type.
