Our Mission

The BizFed Institute (BFI), a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has formed an unprecedented partnership with all 39 State Senators and Assemblymembers representing Los Angeles County, Los Angeles County, the Hospital Association of Southern California (HASC), Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Los Angeles Locals, along with the Los Angeles County Business Federation (BizFed) 195 business associations representing over 400,000 employers to immediately mobilize to find and collect tax-deductible donations of much needed vital personal protective equipment supplies to help protect workers throughout LA County and mitigate the spread of the virus.

Our effort has yielded donations of 50,000 surgical masks thanks to the Chinese-American Federation and Assemblywoman Wendy Carrillo, 50,000 disposable non-medical grade masks thanks to the U.S. Zhejiang General Chamber of Commerce and Assemblymember Ed Chau, as well as 1,500 surgical masks due to the generous contribution from Senator Maria Elena Durazo via Western Drug Medical Supply. Most recently, thanks to Senator Bob Hertzberg, a donation of 1,000 gowns to both the Hospice center and to SEIU workers at Maximum Care Hospice was made.
