Vanessa Bechtel, President/CEO of VCCF said of the gift, “The Foundation’s commitment to strategic grantmaking could not be better represented than through this $105,000 grant to Livingston from the Ruth Daily Livingston Fund. The recent merger between Livingston and Camarillo Hospice not only provides a seamless and more effective provision of services to terminally ill patients and their loved ones but also utilizes precious financial resources in a more impactful manner. The Ruth Daily Livingston Fund was created with the specific purpose of supporting health care services in Ventura County and is a fitting tribute to the memory of her husband, Dr. W.R. Livingston, an esteemed pioneer physician of Ventura County.”
Lanyard Dial, MD, President/CEO and Medical Director of Livingston called VCCF’s generous gift, “welcome recognition from Ventura’s philanthropic heart that it takes a strong web of community support to provide care and bereavement services for the terminally ill and their love ones.”
