Keep the Music Going!

 

Angel's Bone opera

At Ventura College, we believe that no student should be denied a musical education for want of funds. With nearly 90 percent of our students typically eligible for financial assistance, every gift helps us to secure the resources required to meet the needs of our young artists. Our students are deeply grateful for this support, and our community members continually tell us how much they appreciate the role Ventura College and its students play in Ventura's thriving arts landscape.
