Congratulations to our 2023 Pathway of Pride recipients, honored on September 13th 2023 with plaques that surround Webb Lake! These generous donations not only support the endowment for the RBCF, but live on to support non-profit organizations serving Rancho Bernardo in perpetuity!
I feel very proud to lead this community foundation. Founded in 1988 by our forward-thinking community leaders 35 years ago, RBCF is one of the oldest community foundations in the San Diego region. None of this philanthropy is possible without your generous donations and I want to thank you for your commitment to our community! It is your membership contributions that make our annual grantmaking possible. Please know how grateful we all are for your continued support!
RB Community Foundation President
We checked in with David Beevers, Digital Divide Program Manager at RBCF 2022 grantee, San Diego Oasis. He runs a program called Bridging the Digital Divide which provides equipment and technical training for those who are often left out.
“Thanks to your kindness, you all have helped change so many people’s lives. It has opened a whole new world for so many. I have seen so many smiles and happy tears. Thanks to you all!” –David Beevers
