Your donation enables us to help local veterans and their family members with their healthcare, housing, benefits, education and job needs. You can donate several ways!
Your donation will be matched by the Martin V. & Martha K. Smith Foundation’s generous matching funds grant.
In addition, you can also donate texting to (805) 856-6548. You simply send a text message with the dollar amount (e.g. 10, 25, 50, etc.) to that phone number. If this is your first time giving this way, you will have to fill out a short form with your billing info. After the initial setup, giving is as easy as sending a text message to that same number.
In addition, you can also donate with a Venmo account using money you have in Venmo, or link your bank account or debit card quickly. You can find us on Venmo @gcvfvets.
Thank you! On behalf of our veterans and their families, we express our deepest appreciation for your generous giving.
About the Martin V. and Martha K. Smith Foundation
The Martin V. & Martha K. Smith Foundation was established by Martin V. “Bud” Smith and his wife Martha with the mission “To enhance the quality of life for residents of Ventura County”. Bud, the leading land and business developer in Ventura County for more than 50 years, and his wife Martha hoped that the Foundation would involve future generations of their family in continuing their appreciation of Ventura County and their care and concern for strengthening the community. Four of Bud and Martha Smith’s descendants serve on the board of the Foundation. Joining the Ventura County Community Foundation as a support organization in 1994, the Martin V. & Martha K. Smith Foundation provides funding to nonprofits in Ventura County through an annual grant program, with an emphasis on organizations serving the Oxnard plain.
