“I Will Find a Way or Make One”

The Ebell of Los Angeles is a philanthropic organization founded by women, for women in 1894. Originally created for education, art and equality, the Ebell remains strong today. Our club supports dozens of non-profits and scholarships, in addition to hosting special events, live music, dinners and community forums. The motto, “I will find a way, or make one” aligns with its core mission to encourage the educational, cultural and social growth of the diverse Los Angeles community.

Our club is open to everyone and we encourage you to join us as we continue to inspire & empower for another 100 years!

Ginger Barnard 02_editedGinger Barnard, President

The Ebell of Los Angeles is a club for women that combines tradition and modernity with members from diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, experiences and interests. With our 125th anniversary approaching we continue to meet in our beautiful, historic building on Wilshire Boulevard, where our members engage with one another, learn from each other and work together for our philanthropies, programs and projects. Our monthly programs and events are designed to appeal to a wide variety of people and interests.

As the 63rd President of the Ebell of Los Angeles, I invite you to visit the Ebell and consider joining a community of more than 500 dynamic women who are committed to education, culture and philanthropy with a large dose of fun and camaraderie included.

I am honored to serve as President of the Ebell and look forward to meeting you when you attend one of our events which are open to all.
