The guiding concept of the foundation is that individuals who are not normally philanthropic can donate small amounts of money which when aggregated can be used to make a difference and ordinary people can create miracles.
The Rob Benzon Foundation grants funds to both individuals with urgent needs in response to a catastrophic event and to established charitable organizations that provide services to those in need in San Diego.
