When our neighbors need us, we’re on speed dial
That’s because everyone in the community we serve knows that the Community Foundation of the Verdugos (CFV) is aware of the issues at hand, the players involved, and the people who can put in place a solution. That’s all part of working with our community to address both short-term and long-term issues related to social services, education, the arts, and many more vital services.

Funds and causes we champion

Homelessness, community safety, education, animal welfare, the environment, the arts, disaster relief — these are just some of the needs funded by CFV and its donors and fundholders, to the tune of tens of millions of dollars and counting.
