THE PHILANTHROPIST

I named my foundation Vaughn’s Valley because I have deep ties to the Sacramento valley. This is where so many people influenced my life and where I want to focus my efforts to do more in this community. It’s my goal to continue my efforts with the striking out Type 1 diabetes (T1D) because my son Cory was diagnosed with T1D at the age of eleven, but I’m expanding the reach of VVF.

 

The Foundation’s purpose will not only be to raise needed funds directly, but if I can use my resources to offer positive exposure to community organization in the valley then VVF will be successful.

 

This website will help connect our community. My team will post upcoming community events, offer exposure to organizations that need our help and be a source for your giving. If you know of an organization that may need our help, please contact us.

Greg Vaughn received a call while on the road playing in the major leagues that his son Cory, then eleven years old, was diagnosed the T1D. That call would change their lives. The Vaughn’s Valley Foundation is committed to helping organizations like Juvenile Diabetes Research foundation (JDRF) because their mission is to raise awareness and fund life-changing breakthroughs in research to cure, prevent, and treat T1D.

Vaughn’s Valley Foundation is committed to addressing the challenges in our community and Greg is 916-4-LIFE. We know it takes a village to nurture our youth and to strengthen families. Finding and supporting programs like ReImagine Mack Road are the beginning of what this foundation is about.
