Kevin Crawford - Board Chairman Ranch Santa Fe Foundation

Kevin Crawford

Board Chairman

“Having concluded my first year of a two-year term as Chairman of the Board, I can confidently say that it was not without its challenges; but thanks for the incredible dedication on the part of Board and Staff, we responded to a remote working environment and concluded a very positive first phase of a strategic planning process. I remain enthusiastic for what the future holds in 2021 – the 40th Anniversary of Rancho Santa Fe Foundation.”

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.
