The Important Work You're Supporting

The Annual Leadership Awards Reception is CAUSE Action Fund's biggest fundraising event of the year! You help us raise our annual operating funds through ticket sales, pre-event sponsorships from individuals and households, elected officials and unions, companies and organizations as well as through a silent auction and donations made at the event. Because we are a political organization, we rely on individual contributions to support our electoral and political work.
Every bit truly helps! 

CAUSE Action Fund is a grassroots nonprofit community group that empowers working families, immigrant communities, and young people in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties to vote and elect candidates that represent us. We are a people-powered organization that believes our elected representatives should stand for quality schools, immigrant rights, workers’ rights, affordable housing, public transportation, clean air and water, and affordable healthcare.

We do this important work throughout the year, long before and long after electoral campaigns come and go. CAUSE Action continues to elect candidates and hold decision makers accountable to our values. We stay rooted in the insight of our grassroots leaders as we fight for economic, environmental and social justice in our region. CAUSE Action is the partner organization to CAUSE. Because CAUSE Action is a 501(c)4 nonprofit, donations are not tax deductible.

Event & Program

  • Food & Drinks, Music & Mingling, Silent Auction
  • Brief Program Highlighting our Work & Honoring our Awardees

Congratulations, Gloria Soto – our 2023 Corazón Award Recipient!

Each year at our Annual Leadership Awards Reception we celebrate bold local leaders like Santa Maria Councilwoman Gloria Soto dedicated to the difficult work of progressive political movement building.
We know that – as a fellow supporter of local grassroots-led electoral work – you’ll be uplifted hearing more about the inspiring path Gloria and other progressive community leaders continue to forge forth in support of our work!
