Betty Ferguson Foundation
Janice Murray, Barbara Shide, Julie Sturgeon, & Marjanne Priest
On August 23, 2010, the Betty Ferguson Foundation was featured on the KHTS Non-Profit Spotlight, which is hosted by Janice Murray . The Non-Profit Spotlight airs every Monday at 10AM on AM-1220 KHTS and is sponsored by Castaic Lake Water Agency.
The Betty Ferguson Foundation, an organization that is committed to supporting and promoting personal and professional growth in women and teen girls - was established in 1998.
Betty Ferguson was the mother of Judy Cox, one of the foundation's founding members. Shortly after Betty passed away in 1996, Judy was going through her mother’s finances, and discovered that Betty gave her money to women and youth organizations. She lived a simple life, not giving to herself but to others.
Today, The Betty Ferguson Foundation serves our community by hosting and providing monthly women’s and teen girl’s meetings, workshops, seminars, and a book club. The foundation continues to support fellow non-profit organizations and provide educational scholarships to College of the Canyons, here in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Betty Ferguson Foundation relies on the generosity of individuals and corporate supporters to provide the funding necessary to host seminars and workshops for women and teen girls.
Jacquie Petersen will be recognized as Betty Ferguson Foundation's 2010 Woman of Honor on Saturday evening September 11th at the Hyatt Regency at Valencia.
