About Us

More than $7 million invested in donor directed causes…and counting!

Located in beautiful Fallbrook California, Legacy Endowment…the Community Foundation is a nonprofit public charity established in 1994 that serves donors, awards grants, and provides leadership to improve the quality of life in the local community and San Diego’s North County, forever.  It is with that long-range vision that the Foundation accepts contributions from individuals and organizations, stewards the funds in trust, and distributes them in accordance with the donor’s charitable intent.

From a modest investment base, the Foundation’s funds have enjoyed significant growth and support an ever-broadening array of charitable organizations and causes in our community.  The Foundation, its volunteer directors, committee members, and staff fully appreciate that heavy responsibility and thoughtfully state our investment policy for both internal and external use.
