Education Through Diversity

We at the Community Foundation strive to build hope, capacity, and community within San Benito County and our neighbors. For over 29 years, the Foundation continues to serve local nonprofit organizations and has granted over $30 million dollars supporting the positive growth of our community. As our county grows, the Foundation looks towards an even greater leadership role and developing a better understanding of San Benito's philanthropic needs. To strengthen our perspective, Community Foundation Board and Staff members will participate in the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion program, (DEI).

Taking this time to learn from the past, being open and agile to respond to the needs of the present, and being prepared for the future are essential in supporting and creating a thriving community. Understanding the real needs, aspirations, and lived experiences of all people in San Benito County allows us to better improve the quality of life for all.

Construction for the Epicenter on San Benito Street began in September of 2020. Operations have been running smoothly and we hope that the Epicenter will be completed and open by the end of the year!
