Coast Hills

CoastHills Community Foundation

Making a difference in our neighbors’ lives.

At CoastHills, we believe our actions must reflect our core values. We aspire to be a positive force on the Central Coast, making a difference in our neighbors’ lives. It’s the most important work we do.

Another great day is more than a tagline, it’s the effort we bring to the table every day so that all of us—members, neighbors, coworkers—can prosper together.

We make a difference
in our neighbors' lives.
Our efforts focus on real needs expressed by our nonprofit partners:

  • Major sponsorships for local nonprofit initiatives
  • Scholarships for high school seniors throughout the Central Coast
  • Sponsorships to help community and school activities
  • $570K in contributions to date for the Hope Cancer Center, Children’s Miracle Network, the Foodbank, and other nonprofits
  • School makeovers, bikes for foster kids, food-filled backpacks for Foodbank participants, employee contributions, and more

We support more than 200 community-based charitable organizations a year. Whether it’s a car show for vets or the high school band, if it is important to our community, it is important to us.

With a little help from your friends

For us, it’s about more than just money. It’s about rolling up our sleeves and participating in the change we seek. From funding projects in schools to building bikes for foster kids, the CoastHills Community Foundation connects us with our members, our neighbors, and each other.

Foundation History

The CoastHills Community Foundation was formed in 2005 to provide funding and support of our community outreach initiatives. In 2008, we held our first Rancho Vino Wine Auction, our signature fundraising event. Since then our fundraising efforts, spearheaded by our own staff volunteers, have raised over $570,000. In 2011, new CoastHills Credit Union members began to contribute to the foundation, via a one-time $5 membership fee, truly making this a neighbors helping neighbors initiative.
