Gold Coast Veterans Foundation Gets $40K Grant

Ventura County veterans will receive expanded services from the Gold Coast Veterans Foundation, thanks to a $40,000 matching grant from the Martin V. & Martha K. Smith Foundation.

The Gold Coast Veterans Foundation assisted more than 2,100 veterans and their families in 2016, a 275 percent increase since 2014. It does not have the staff to assist all the veterans coming to its Veterans Connection Center in Camarillo. The grant will enable it to expand its capabilities to help veterans transition from military employment to a civilian career.

The grant is a matching grant, so the foundation is seeking donations. For more information on how to donate or to volunteer, visit or call 805-482-6550.
