Planning for Perpetuity: Conservancy Partners with Ventura County Community Foundation to establish Land Stewardship Endowment Fund

As a land trust we are committed to preserving our protected lands in perpetuity, which requires dedicated and permanent funding for land management.  The Ventura Hillsides Conservancy Endowment Fund was created to provide a lasting benefit to the lands we love, ensuring their stewardship for years to come. The fund is managed by the Ventura County Community Foundation, a community institution that has helped many of the local charitable organizations in our county grow and thrive.  Donations made to the fund will provide a reliable source of income for the life of our organization.  All contributions are tax deductible.  Please make your gift and preserve a legacy today! You can give online through the VCCF here.
