VC CoLAB Foundation

The VC COLAB Foundation is a 501(c)3 public charity established to procure funding to support VC CoLAB’s educational efforts to advance the use of data and science in regulatory matters, combat threats to our local way of life, and lessen the burdens of government on Ventura County Citizens.

The Foundation will partner with local businesses, land owners, stakeholders and organizations to foster government transparency, business friendly regulations, ordinances and government programs. We aspire to build upon the existing strengths, commitments and engagements of the VC CoLAB Organization by funding scientific research and educational campaigns. This way we can serve a common purpose and continue to be a formidable agent for change in the community.
