Cal Coast

Cal Coast Cares Foundation.

California Coast Credit Union’s story began in 1929 with a singular vision: to make a difference in the communities they serve. Cal Coast goes beyond providing financial solutions – helping to improve the lives of others is at the heart of everything they do.

Building on the legacy of its founding educators, Cal Coast created the Cal Coast Cares Foundation in 2015 as a non-profit 501 (c)(3). Each year, the Cal Coast Cares Foundation proudly awards more than $60,000 in grants to teachers and scholarships to deserving college students and graduating high school seniors, including foster students. The scholarship award program recognizes outstanding students for their dedication to academic excellence and community leadership. This effort would not be possible without generous donors from throughout the community who support the mission to transform lives by providing educational opportunities for all.

The foundation holds two signature events each year to raise funds and help more students and teachers – the Illuminate Pathways reception and an annual Charity Golf Tournament. The Cal Coast Cares Foundation Charity Golf Event, presented by Wawanesa Insurance, will be held on Friday, August 17, 2018, at Maderas Golf Club in Poway. This exciting event will feature a fun day on the links followed by food, entertainment and great silent auction items.

The Illuminate Pathways reception will take place in October at National University’s beautiful Torrey Pines Campus, where guests will be inspired by personal stories from recent scholarship and grant recipients and treated to exciting cuisine and fun local entertainment. Illuminate Pathways sponsors include National University and San Diego Gas & Electric.
