Our Sustaining Benefactors

The Bedrock of
San Benito County

Many dedicated businesses and individuals donate recurring annual gifts of $2,500 or more. These Sustaining Benefactors are invaluable partners of the Foundation, helping to maintain our ongoing work. We are profoundly grateful for our Sustaining Benefactors and their continued generosity. 

Our Founding Benefactors

Established by the board of the Community Foundation in 2000, the people and businesses who make up our Founding Benefactors gave $2,500 or more to launch the Community Foundation’s grantmaking work.

We are deeply grateful to all of them for their vision and dedication to San Benito County.
