In January of each year, for tax purposes, all donors will receive a letter acknowledging their contribution.


To Benefit our Employees, their Families,
and our Neighboring Community

El Caballero Country Club has always made it clear to our members that charity and philanthropy are prerequisites for membership. While we respect our members for their dedication to various causes near and dear to their hearts, the El Caballero Foundation was specifically established to enhance the lives of our loyal employees and the community around us.

Catalina Roldan's Story

Catalina's dad, Enzo, is a longtime favorite El Cab employee. Catalina worked part time as our hostess while attending Cal State Northridge with tuition assistance from El Caballero Foundation. Her academic achievements earned her a once in a lifetime opportunity to study in France but the costs were prohibitive. The foundation agreed to pay Catalina's tuition and she is working part time to cover her living costs. This video reflects her elation and her gratitude for the generosity of El Cab members.


The El Caballero Foundation has already helped those who help us by:

Providing a new laptop for Enzo's daughter

"I want to thank you and the rest of the Foundation for making this possible. The laptop is beautiful and fast! I am beyond grateful. Once again, thank you very much."


  • Providing tuition assistance to the daughter of an employee who is studying Engineering at UC Berkeley
  • Assisting with the purchase of hearing aids for an employee whose insurance would not cover the cost
  • Helping a 30 year employee with the cost of his cancer treatment at the City of Hope
  • Purchasing a new electronic gate for the Tarzana Fire Station 93 which has resulted in faster response time for emergencies

    "For whatever the reason you come to El Cab, you feel like you are at home. Over time you develop a kinship with the people who serve you, and you get to know them as friends. I welcome the El Caballero Foundation as an opportunity to provide assistance to those who help make El Caballero my second home."

    -Mort Maurer (40 Year Member of El Caballero Country Club)
