I hope you are having a joyful holiday season. As we end 2016, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and dedication to the Carlsbad Charitable Foundation (CCF) and share a few highlights from the past few months.

Membership Holiday Party

We had a successful Membership Holiday Party December 1 at the beautiful home of Pam Valinet. The evening was a perfect combination of great conversations, holiday laughter, delicious food and ambient music.

Executive Director of Interfaith Services Greg Anglea shared the impact that CCF grants have had on his organization and others in our local neighborhood.

Member Updates and Grant Cycle

CCF is proud to announce that we had five new members join since our Holiday event!

Members and guests are always welcome to join us at our events so that they can experience firsthand the benefits of being a member of CCF.
