King Trivia® Cares is hosting a special Trivia Night to benefit Youth Policy Institute, an organization dedicated to transforming Los Angeles neighborhoods using a holistic approach to reduce poverty by ensuring youth and families have access to high-quality educational and economic opportunities, enabling a successful transition from cradle to college and career.

This King Trivia® Cares event will take place during our normal trivia time at 33 Taps in Silverlake on June 4th, 2019, from 7:30-9:30 PM.

No purchase necessary to play trivia, though if you do donate at the event, you will be eligible to win a portion of the proceeds!

About Youth Policy Institute

Empowering Los Angeles

For more than 30 years, YPI has been breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty. At the core of our commitment to serving key high-need communities in Los Angeles with essential resources and support services, we focus on direct education and comprehensive services including early childhood education, tutoring, operating K–12 schools, college preparation, computer labs, case management, financial capability, and job training.

Originally part of the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial, YPI was founded in 1983 in Washington, D.C. In 1996, YPI relocated to Los Angeles to focus on direct education and comprehensive services including early childhood education, tutoring, operating K–12 schools, college preparation, computer labs, case management, financial empowerment, and job training.

Now over 1,500 YPI employees serve some of the city’s lowest-income neighborhoods, reaching more than 112,000 youth and adults annually at 138 program sites in Los Angeles. YPI is the only nonprofit in the country to receive all three signature federal Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative grants: Promise Neighborhoods (twice), Choice Neighborhoods, Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation, and the Los Angeles Promise Zone designation, making YPI the lead implementation partner for the zone.

These endorsements of YPI’s work have been a humbling call to action—to build and strengthen our collaborations, invest in our staff and infrastructure, and continue to increase the impact of our work. We are honored to provide these services to some of the most vulnerable youth and families in Los Angeles, and we thank you for your support of YPI.

About King Trivia Cares

Are you on a quest to make the world a better place? Are you looking to raise money and boost awareness for a local charity, non-profit group, unfunded school program or other worthwhile special project? King Trivia Cares!

King Trivia events are a perfect tool for raising awareness and raising funds. By holding your event at a King Trivia show, you’ll tap into our extensive community of culturally attuned players, and we’ll help spread the word by promoting your fundraiser throughout our empire. Best of all, there are no fees involved! At King Trivia, we’re all about the philanthropy.

How it Works:
Your fundraiser will take place in tandem with a regular King Trivia event. King Trivia®games are free to play, but those who opt to support your cause will make a pre-determined contribution (typically $5-$15 per player) from which a small amount (we recommend 10%) is set aside as a prize for the winning team.

That’s it! All remaining funds go to the sponsoring organization. King Trivia Cares charges no fees of any kind, and does not benefit financially in any way. We do get a warm fuzzy glow inside, however.

Scheduling a King Trivia Cares event is easy. All we need from you is a commitment to bring at least 20 (or more) players grouped into 5 (or more) teams. We’ll do our best to accommodate specific scheduling requests, and will work with you to determine the best location and timing. King Trivia gets to make the final decision on what location may be used for your King Trivia® CARES event.
