Once again, the COVID-19 Pandemic prevented us from celebrating and honoring the 2021 VCCF scholarship recipients at our annual VCCF scholarship reception. Although we are disappointed to miss another year of gathering in person, the health and wellbeing of our students and donors is our priority. Since the 2020 #BecauseYouGave campaign was so successful, we opted to continue the campaign featuring the 2021 recipients.
Our students submitted wonderful stories and photos of how VCCF scholarships are impacting their families, their education, and their future. Please click below to see the moving stories of our 2021 VCCF scholarship recipients.
TO OUR DEAR SCHOLARSHIP DONORS
Once again, thank you so much for your continued commitment and dedication to our Ventura County students. Your continued support through the funds granted by your scholarships truly creates meaningful change for these students and is an investment back into our community.
We wanted to find a way to thank you for all you do to make educational dreams a reality for so many students and we believe that the best ‘thank you’ is hearing directly from the students themselves. As you can see by the video, your generosity is truly changing the lives of so many students!
