About Us

The Rancho Santa Fe Women's Fund was established in November 2004 as a way for members to join together in meaningful and engaging ways to give back to the greater San Diego community. The power of many women giving together has helped us make a significant impact on community-wide needs with focused collective grant making.

The RSF Women’s Fund, a donor advised fund* of the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation, has 112 members; and since its inception in 2004, has awarded grants totaling nearly over $3 million
