Miriam Schwab will go down in history as one of Ventura’s greatest benefactors. The successful real estate developer and music lover, who passed away in December 2017, made an enormous, $12 million donation to Ventura College.

“This is the largest gift ever to a Southern California community college,” says Anne Paul King, executive director of the Ventura College Foundation, “and the second largest gift in the state for a community college, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy gift database.”

A gift of this size is a game changer — and it just may help Ventura College transform itself into one of the most prestigious music education entities in the nation.
