More about the Ventura College Foundation:
Ventura College Foundation, established in 1981, is dedicated to the support and enhancement of the student educational experience through fundraising activities that provide scholarships to students, grants to faculty and staff, and funds for special projects at Ventura College.
Since it was founded, the Foundation and its volunteer board of directors have raised over $12 million to support the students and student services at Ventura College. Currently the foundation provides over $420,000 per year in scholarships and over $500,000 in program and capital support to Ventura College.
The Ventura College Foundation is made up of a volunteer board of 18 community leaders who serve as the Board of Directors, and hundreds of supporters, all of whom are dedicated to enhancing and sustaining the educational experience at Ventura College. Over its history, the Foundation has raised more than $12 million in private support for Ventura College. Though Ventura College receives state funding, that funding falls far short of actually covering the costs incurred in providing educational opportunities for over 14,500 students.
Donors to the Ventura College Foundation take pride in the fact that their gifts have helped to create a very special environment for learning that reflects the characteristics of our community and our students.
