California Resources Corporation continues to ensure that Central Valley Latinas have access to critical programs and opportunities for leadership development.

Thank you for your continued support of Latina Leaders of Kern County and leadership development in the Central Valley. Together we will continue to ‘strengthen our communities, one leader at a time’.

The support of CRC for Honor Flight Kern County has been humbling! With CRC’s generous donation, over 18 local veterans were able to take a life changing Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. to see THEIR memorial. We hope each and every CRC employee knows that they are personally responsible for changing these veterans’ lives - at the end of their lives. It is an experience that families tell us about and the veterans talk about EVERY day.

We are also honored to have your staff members join us for our monthly breakfasts; not only to help serve breakfast to these heroes, but also to chat and interact with them. It makes them feel so special that you are interested in THEM. Our appreciation is greater than what can be put into words. We only hope that you see that personally on the faces of our living history.

Lili Marsh, Executive Director for Honor Flight Kern County

The Yuba Sutter Diabetes Support & Resource Center provides a much needed service for people who live in our community with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. Without California Resources Corporation’s support, we could not keep our services FREE. Every donation they have given us over the years helps us to keep our doors open for people who need education and support after diagnosis. It really does “take a village”!

The staff and board of directors would like to thank California Resources Corporation for recognizing our efforts and for helping to keep our mission ongoing!

California Resources Corporation's contribution allowed 1,300 students from Long Beach Unified to participate in our annual Science Fair this year. We were able to purchase Science Fair t- shirts, pins, ribbons, name badges and certificates for our Science Fair District winners. CRC's financial donation provided breakfast and snacks for our 100 volunteer Science Fair rReviewers and 50 ROTC members. The Science Fair is fully funded by donations.

We have 3,000 people that attend our Science Fair who are community members, Board members, family and friends. The financial support allowed us to bring in The Aquarium of the Pacific, Cal State Long Beach Mobile Science Museum, the Herpetology Society and many other hands-on activities. Also, California Resources Corporation provided employees to be Science Fair reviewers two years in a row. They were able to witness the enthusiasm and joy of our students. We cannot thank you enough for your encouragement and support in furthering science for our LBUSD students!

After a year of outstanding partnership and support, California Resources Corporation has helped us bring a new wonderful technological tool to life at Bolsa Chica. The BolsaChicaPro App is a state-of-the-art iPhone App which will guide the public through the history, ecology, flora and fauna of the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve.

One of the Reserve’s challenges is educational outreach to more than 40,000 visitors each year. Now, thanks to the significant support of CRC, those who access the App will have a virtual docent with a large amount of information available at the user’s fingertips. We hope that this new tool will help people deepen their understanding of the importance of our local ecology, and their role in helping to sustain it.

This is a project that would not have been possible without CRC’s leadership and financial support. The Bolsa Chica Land Trust is deeply grateful to CRC for their commitment to being an upstanding neighbor and corporate sponsor.

Beyond “just” writing a check, California Resources Corporation first partnered with the American Red Cross by taking the time to discover the various elements that were a true match for both organizations. These initiatives, built on the foundation of donations which drive the Red Cross “Service to the Armed Forces” line of business, focus on bringing the recognized brands to life in the communities where both organizations live, work, and serve. The American Red Cross is thankful for a meaningful and sustained partnership with California Resources Corporation, which is among the type we strive to emulate with others.

The American Red Cross Serving Greater Long Beach, Rio Hondo and South Bay is grateful for the generous, loyal and ongoing support of California Resources – both financially and providing representation and expertise on our board of directors.

Every 8 minutes the Red Cross is called on to help someone who has lost everything in a home fire. Because all disaster services are free to our clients, we count on our corporate partners, like California Resources, to make sure that the Red Cross is there when we are needed most.

Thank you for your support!

On behalf of SEEAG, I would like to personally and sincerely thank the California Resources Corporation for generously supporting Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture and Ventura County Farm Day. Even with California's rich agricultural heritage, many people don't connect the acres of farmland to the food on their tables. SEEAG and VC Farm Day help make that connection. We are teaching children and families the importance of local agriculture and to care about local farms, farmers and our agricultural workforce who ensures we have food on our tables every single day.

It takes a county and without the generous support of donors like California Resources Corporation our mission and work would not be possible. For profit businesses helping nonprofits accomplish our missions is vital to the well- being and health of our community.

Mary Maranville, Founder and Executive Director, SEEAG
