Our Mission

At Rancho Santa Fe Foundation, a San Diego community foundation, our mission is to connect donors with regional and global needs through visionary community leadership, personalized service and effective grant-making.

We’re proud that our donors and community are served on a local level. Many of our donations are provided by residents of the Coastal North County San Diego, which include Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar, Solana Beach, and Encinitas. In return, we work to give back to communities in need throughout San Diego County.
