Central Coast Voices: The Power of Giving

Broadcast date: 9/27/2018

In 1998, The Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County began its mission to provide the local community with an enduring form of local support. Today, 20 years later, this mission continues, by providing leadership and encouraging charitable giving for the issues that improve and enhance lives in the county.  In 2017 through a commitment to philanthropic leadership and the help of forward-thinking donors and community partners, they were able to distribute a record $5 million in grants and scholarships to support a variety of important work in San Luis Obispo.

Join host Kris Kington-Barker as she speaks with Heidi McPherson, CEO of the Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County and Sharon Beko, the Owner and Financial Director of Cottonwood Canyon Vineyard and Winery in Santa Maria and the Chair of the Women’s Legacy Advisory Board as they celebrate 20 years of impact and discuss the role of collective philanthropy in our community.

Central Coast Voices is sponsored by ACTION for Healthy Communities in collaboration with KCBX and made possible through underwriting by Joan Gellert-Sargen.
