About Us

The Rancho Santa Fe Women's Fund was established in November 2004 as a way for members to join together in meaningful and engaging ways and give back to the greater San Diego community. The power of many women giving together has helped us make a significant impact on community-wide needs with focused collective grant making.  We are a donor advised fund* of the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation, are 112 members strong, and have awarded nearly $3 Million dollars in grants to date

Our Mission

The mission of the Rancho Santa Fe Women’s Fund is to build a sense of community through volunteerism, social activities and focused, collective giving while escalating awareness of local organizations and needs.

Our Vision

    • We aim to educate and inspire our members to be well-informed, active philanthropists
    • We seek to increase our membership by gathering friends and neighbors who have similar goals and ideals
    • We collaborate to improve and strengthen lives through charitable grants
    • Through our grants we support innovative approaches to philanthropy
    • We serve our San Diego areas by discovering and addressing local needs
