Charity Partner Ventura Community Partners Foundation

Give the Gift of Play!

Please consider making a donation of a youth scholarship today. Donations will go directly to children in the City of Ventura whose families cannot afford activity fees. The average cost of a recreation class is $45.

“The scholarship my daughter received allowed her to have the opportunity to get swim lessons at the Ventura Aquatic Center. Not only will the scholarship help provide her with lifesaving skills of swimming, we are also excited to make new friends in our community.” Denia, a parent of a youth scholarship recipient.

“The Summer Camp Scholarship has allowed my child to experience the fun activities to continue to develop his physical, mental and social skills.  He has enjoyed the camps very much.”  Oscar, parent of a youth scholarship recipient.

These experiences help our local children live healthier both physically and emotionally through fitness and social interactions with their peers. With assistance from a Ventura Plays Scholarship, families who could not otherwise afford fees can sign up their children for a life changing recreation activity including basketball, swim lessons, camps, art classes and more.

After completing your fundraising setup please reach out to Katrina Maksimuk.
Email: KMaksimuk@cityofventura.ca.gov and inform her on the LEVEL you are fundraising for. You must have selected an incentive LEVEL by April 27th to guarantee access to those incentives.
