The guiding concept of the Rob Benzon Dan Ferbal Foundation is to offer individuals, who are not normally philanthropic, the opportunity to donate small amounts of money, which when aggregated, can be used to make a positive impact. We believe people can help create miracles! Through the Rob Benzon Dan Ferbal Foundation Grant Program, funds are awarded to individuals with urgent needs (in response to a catastrophic event) as well as to established San Diego charitable organizations that provide services in keeping with the RBDFF mission.


There is NO LAUNCH 2024 Fundraising Event this Year, but Exciting New Opportunities Await!


Your Donations
at Work

Since 1999, the generosity of our donors has created a positive impact for many San Diegans in need. Our Board of Directors is committed to awarding grants to worthy individuals and causes that align with our organization’s mission. We appreciate and welcome all donations, big or small!

See how your generosity has helped those in need over the decades.


In 1999, the San Diego Community lost one of its greatest friends, Rob Benzon. This vibrant and inspirational 31-year-old drowned in a sudden ocean rip-current while on vacation in Acapulco with many of the current board members, which included Dan Ferbal. In 2019, Dan passed away while he was president of our organization. We continue to honor his memory by making donations to some of his favorite Rob Benzon Dan Ferbal Foundation (formerly Rob Benzon Foundation) recipients.
