Healthcare & Community Well-being
BVEF's original mission was, and continues to be, ensuring access to quality healthcare in Borrego Springs. Although it is a small, rural community Borrego Springs is also a gateway community for the Anza Borrego Desert State Park. Thus medical resources must be capable of serving not only residents, but also the Park's 1 million + visitors per year.
As a community foundation, BVEF also partners with local groups to enhance the lives of children and seniors and to support the well-being of the entire community.
Covid 19 Taskforce
The BVEF responded to the Covid-19 crisis in an immediate and meaningful way with a donation of over $75,000. To see how these funds made a difference, watch this short tribute. https://youtu.be/o-HP4Lm3iRs
Medical Emergency Evacuation
For over 20 years BVEF has helped to provide air evacuation services to permanent and seasonal valley residents. BVEF contracts with Mercy Air to cover the deductibles and co-insurance of Borregans for emergency medical air transportation.
Health & Well-being
In addition to supporting the region's only medical clinic, the BVEF supports well-being initiatives to improve child nutrition, seniors' access to food and medical care and programs that help the entire community thrive.
