The mission of the Channel Islands Gulls is to raise money for Ventura County non-profit organizations who do not receive Federal funding. In 2019 we donated more than $50,000 to the following organizations. In addition to opening their wallets, the Gulls open their closets, their food pantries and their hearts by giving of their time to the organizations we help.
2019 Non-Profit Recipients
The Channel Islands Gulls give more than money to our charities – we give of ourselves: our time and talents. We keep track of our members’ volunteer hours for our charities on a yearly basis to assist with grant proposals.
Every organization we support can use YOU in some way.
