Welcome to the Village Community Fund

The Village Community Fund (VCF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) community- benefit charitable organization created by Village residents to provide support for programs, services, and facilities that enrich the lives of older adults. It is a successful way of giving back to our community. And a great opportunity to make your year-end charitable donation work for the community you live in and love.

The 2022 Aqua Follies

Presented by Laguna Woods Aquadettes

The popular, renown Laguna Woods Aquadettes are in rehearsals now for the September 2022 production of “The Aqua Follies”.  The Aquadettes, a fun group of women with a common love of synchronized swimming, have been entertaining audiences for 56 years with their spectacular shows, typically one big performance per year in the Village. The last performance was in 2019, but the swimmers will perform for audiences again with an all-new show this September.  But your financial support is needed to fund the production.  Visit the Aqua Follies page for more details.

Since 2017, when VCF was created, thousands of dollars have been raised in support of projects such as the Florence Sylvester Senior Center Meals on Wheels Program, Video Club refurbishing, and Golf Course timer clock.  During 2021, the VCF Board of Directors, comprised of Laguna Woods Village residents, has partnered with several clubs to meet the goal of raising more than $35,000 for:

LITE THE NITE – Hooray!  The Lite the Nite committee fundraising campaign is now complete, having raised $25,000in record time for Pickleball court lights to increase night-time court availability.  The construction project is now in the works to turn the lights on in early 2022.  Donors and volunteers to the project will have the opportunity to attend a Sneak Peek event as soon as the construction is done.  Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the USA, and a mainstay offered year-round in Laguna Woods. Visit the Lite the Nite page on our website for more details.

Help the Herd – Congratulations, the Help the Herd Committee exceeded its goal in June 2021 of raising $10,000+ in support of the Equestrian Center’s horses.  More than 52 donors gave generously to provide comfort and vet care to our wonderful pack of horses that provide joy and happiness to Laguna Woods riders and their guests. You’re welcome to visit the Equestrian Center and learn more about this amazing program.
