Philanthropy Spotlight: Coastal Community Foundation

Established in 1987, the Coastal Community Foundation is a resource and service for the north coastal communities, including Carmel Valley, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Encinitas, La Costa, Carlsbad and Oceanside.

Through the power of endowments and grant making, donors personalize giving in a way that meets their needs and desires. The Foundation staff and board help connect donors to causes they care about the most. Individuals are ensured that their donation will continue to work to make their communities better and stronger in perpetuity.

The mission of the Coastal Community Foundation is to enhance the quality of life in the north coast by helping donors achieve their current and long-term charitable goals, helping professional advisors aid their clients and helping nonprofits support their programs and services.

This spring, CCF awarded more than $20,000 for classroom projects in math, reading, science, the environment, school gardens, music and the arts via Education PLUS! grants. A new women’s fund makes a difference in the lives of women and girls by pooling their resources in San Diego County for programs addressing women re-entering the work force and mentoring girls.
