Press release from: Ventura College Founation

Ventura, Calif.—Stephen J. Kipp, president and CEO of Kipp Financial Group, has joined the Ventura College Foundation’s board of directors. Kipp Financial Group had previously served as the investment management advisor for the Ventura College Foundation’s scholarship endowment funds. So he is very familiar with the Foundation and passionate about its mission of serving students.

A third-generation Ventura County resident, Kipp brings to the board over 45 years of combined professional experience and diversified financial knowledge, as well as extensive community outreach. As a board member, Kipp will help provide the expertise and investment oversight needed to secure and grow the Foundation’s enrichment and endowment funds.

“Giving back to the community is a core value at Kipp Financial Group, and Stephen has a strong commitment to assisting organizations like ours with fundraising and community outreach,” said Norbert Tan, executive director of the Ventura College Foundation. “His financial planning expertise will go a long way toward helping to ensure that the investments by donors, planned giving and scholarships remain secure and grow over time.”

Kipp was also an adjunct professor at Ventura College for 10 years, teaching night classes in financial education. It was in this capacity that he developed a deep appreciation for the opportunities offered at the college and the Foundation to help students achieve their goals.

“My years of teaching gave me first-hand experience with students who were motivated to further their careers to make a better life for themselves and their loved ones, often juggling work, family and classes to make that happen,” said Kipp. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to serve on the Foundation board and help these dedicated students pursue a college education.”

Kipp earned his Personal Financial Planner designation through the UCLA Graduate School of Management, his MBA from California State University, Northridge and a master's degree in public administration from USC. He holds NASD Series 24, Series 7 and Series 63 and Life, Health and Disability License through the California Department of Insurance.

The Ventura College Foundation’s board of directors is led by John Woolley, chair; Ruth Hemming, vice-chair; Mike Montoya, treasurer; Sharon Watts Woolley, secretary; Donna Santo, immediate past chair; Greg Gillespie, Ventura College president; and Norbert Tan, executive director.

Established in 1983, the Ventura College Foundation provides financial support to the students and the programs of Ventura College to facilitate student success and grow the impact and legacy of Ventura College as a vital community asset.
