Remembering Eric Ashton, Sr., Community Leader
We are deeply saddened at the passing of Eric Arthur Ashton Sr., father of CFV Board member Eric A. Ashton Jr., and send our most sincere condolences to his family.
Mr. Ashton, a well-known attorney, community leader, and business developer in the City of Glendale, was also a former member of the CFV Board of Directors. He was, in fact, among the early leaders of the Foundation and had supported the CFV for decades in numerous ways. He and his late wife Gloria “Joanne” also maintained The Ashton Family Donor Advised Fund with the Foundation.
The Ashton Family has requested that in lieu of flowers, gifts may be made in memory of Mr. Ashton to the Ashton Family Fund in order that good works may continue in the community. We are humbled in our sadness to know that the Ashton Family is keeping the Foundation in their thoughts at this time and are honored to assist in helping others to remember Mr. Ashton through a special gift.

The Community Foundation of the Verdugos includes well over 95 charitable funds. Their purposes are as varied as their donors, but most fall into one of the following types: Donor-Advised Endowed Funds and Donor-Advised Non-Endowed Funds.
- All funds are “Donor-Advised” because the donor directs where the money is given and how the fund is set up
- Endowed Funds are ideal because they are permanent. The primary principle of the fund is kept intact while a portion of the earnings are used to provide continuing support for the benefit of a charitable cause
- Non-Endowed Funds, also referred to as “Pass Through Funds,” mean that the entire amount of the fund can be used to support a charitable cause if desired
