Cultural Arts Endowment

Arts & Cultural Endowment for Ventura County – The Arts Council established this fund in 2002 with $3,000 of initial seed money.  The Endowment’s mission is, “To enhance the quality of life for the people of Ventura County, California, through the strengthening of the arts community and the to support programs that provide a resource and advocate for the arts community, as a catalyst for leadership on art issues and as a sponsor of programs and services which enhance public awareness of arts activities.”  The monies are invested with the Ventura County Community Foundation and are safe and well managed.  The goal of this program is to increase the endowment to at least $100,000 so that interest income from it can be invested in the community to further the Endowment’s mission.  If you are interested in contributing to the endowment or working with others to expand it, please CLICK HERE to contact us via email, or you can call the office – (805) 658-2213.
