Ventura Foundation Supports Casitas Rowing

VIDEO: Ventura Foundation Supports Casitas Rowing

VCCF 25th Anniversary Celebration Video (Rowing starts at 8 minutes in)

The Ventura County Community Foundation (VCCF) has been a generous supporter of Casitas Rowing since its inception as a non-profit community rowing program in 2008.  VCCF is celebrating its 25 years of helping local non-profits serve the people of Ventura County, and its anniversary video highlights Casitas Rowing among its achievements in grantmaking, scholarships and training to improve our community “for good, for ever.”

View the video to see the wide impact of VCCF across the 10 cities of Ventura County, and to see how it helped Casitas Rowing founders Eric and Wendy Gillett take a dream of a rowing program and turn it into a thriving organization that offers kids and adults participation in a life changing team sport.  

“We were given the opportunity to take several of the VCCF training classes and non-profit leadership seminars. They really changed the way we focused our organization.”
— Wendy Gillett, Program Coordinator for Casitas Rowing

Director Eric Gillett is passionate about the good work being done by the Foundation. “For us at Casitas Rowing, leading a non-profit and trying to keep on top of so many important details can be overwhelming. The VCCF has been our lighthouse in the storm, and we are so fortunate to have had their guidance, support and encouragement.” 

Thank you VCCF for your 25 years of dedication — view the entire video in 15 minutes, the ROWING starts about 8 minutes in. This is a larger video, so thanks for your patience while it loads.  


Casitas Rowing is currently raising money for our scholarship fund so that
every teen has the chance to enjoy the sport of rowing.
