A Message from the Board of Directors
Celebrating 60-Year Partnership with the Community
VCMRF’s history of supporting programs and services with the community has resulted in some truly outstanding accomplishments, including helping fund programs and services which benefit all residents of Ventura County, especially those that encounter barriers to accessing health care services.
Even with the remarkable accomplishments of the past 60 years, needs are still increasing daily and we need to continue to keep people healthy in our community. We know this is a challenging environment, but we also recognize the commitment and compassion of this generous community, and we have no doubt that together we can meet these challenges.
Vibrant communities bring people together and build on the social and economic assets of their people and organizations. People and organizations working together foster policies that support brighter futures for all our families and strengthen a healthy community. This is why VCMRF thanks you for your gift, regardless of the size of your donation; your support is sincerely appreciated and greatly needed.
Please know that our committed, volunteer, community, board members are investing your donated dollars in the most critical and needed areas in Ventura County.
