Conrad N. Hilton Foundation Awards $2 Million PRI to Ventura County Community Foundation

The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation has announced a $2 million program-related investment to the Ventura County Community Foundation in support of the VCCF Nonprofit Center in Camarillo.

Established in December 2012, the center houses sixteen local nonprofits at below-market rent, provides free meeting space to community organizations, and offers low-cost professional training at its Center for Nonprofit Leadership. The funds were contributed as part of a $10 million capital campaign in support of the center’s purchase of the building it currently occupies and the establishment of a permanent endowment to support its leadership work.

In addition to VCCF and the Center for Nonprofit Leadership, building tenants include United Way of Ventura County, Interface Children & Family Services, Kids & Families Together, the Gold Coast Veterans Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County, and the New West Symphony.

"We’re pleased to be able to help VCCF cover the costs of establishing the Center for Nonprofit Leadership and by extension to help local nonprofits in the Ventura County area," said Steven M. Hilton, chairman, president, and CEO of the Hilton Foundation. "Under VCCF's guidance, hundreds of nonprofits stand to benefit from the center's programs, creating a ripple effect of impact in the region."
