We offer professional advisors resources and tools to help them meet their clients’ charitable goals.
We are committed to strengthening the local nonprofit sector and each year offer grants, workshops and resources to hundreds of local organizations.
We are a tax-exempt public charity serving people who share a common interest to improve the quality of life in Santa Cruz County, and beyond, through philanthropy.
In the U.S., there are more than 750 community foundations. In 2011, as a group we gave an estimated $4.3 billion to a variety of nonprofit activities in fields that included the arts, education, health, human services, environment and disaster relief.
