Rancho Bernardo Community Foundation Awards $80,000 to 18 Organizations to Enhance Quality of Life in Rancho Bernardo

For Immediate Release

November 19, 2021 – San Diego, CA – Rancho Bernardo Community Foundation (RBCF), an affiliate of The San Diego Foundation, today awarded $80,000 to 18 organizations to enhance the quality of life for those who live, work and play in Rancho Bernardo.

In the interest of the safety of the community, the board of RBCF made the difficult decision to award the Grantees during a virtual celebration. The 34-year tradition of the annual community Thanksgiving luncheon will return to the RB Inn next year in November 2022.

“We’re proud to invest and partner with local organizations who share our passion for making Rancho Bernardo a thriving community,” said Daniel Wilson, RBCF Board President. “Our goal with these grants is to increase community pride and improve the quality of life in Rancho Bernardo for generations to come.”

The 2021-2022 grant cycle aims to build a more vibrant and civically engaged community. These nonprofit organizations’ core mission is to serve the Rancho Bernardo community, which has been severely impacted as a result of a global pandemic.

About the 2021-2022 Grantees:

The Foundation awarded a special grant of $25,000 during the height of the pandemic this year to Feeding San Diego to support Poway Food Connections and Interfaith Community Services to provide access to food and fight food insecurity. Together with the $25,000 to Feeding San Diego and the following grant, the RBCF granted $80,000 in 2021.

In its 33 years of grantmaking, RBCF has granted more than $880,000 to over 120 nonprofit programs that strengthen quality of life for all who live, work and enjoy Rancho Bernardo.
