Impact Lives Through Education

Established in 1983, the Foundation is one of the most successful community college foundations in California, having raised over $48 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.

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.

Your gift has an incredible impact!

There are a wide variety of ways to give to Ventura College – and an equal array of opportunities to be honored and celebrated for your generous gifts.


Ventura College Promise aims to reduce obstacles for incoming first-year, first-time, full-time students by covering the cost of the per unit Enrollment Fee, Health Fee, Student Center Fee, and Student Representative Fee for students who meet certain eligibility requirements.
