Laying the Foundation
Established in 1983, the Foundation is one of the most successful community college foundations in California, having raised more than $39.6 million dollars for Ventura College and its students.
Through this support, the Ventura College Foundation transforms students' lives through education by providing innovative and vital resources and financial support. The Foundation collaborates with Ventura College to enhance human potential, civic engagement, careers, and academic success of students enabling their effective impact and legacy on the college, local workforce, and our community. Approximately 5,300 students are supported each school year. With your help, we can help grow this number.
The Foundation is seeking individuals, corporations, and foundations who wish to invest in education. By improving education, together we can enhance the quality of life and commerce in our county.
