Community First

Santa Cruz Derby Girls are dedicated to community involvement. League members join forces with local non-profit organizations to provide volunteer support and help strengthen our bond with the Santa Cruz community. Our Community First committee facilitates, organizes, and directs league volunteer support.

Each season, SCDG chooses one organization as our Featured Non-Profit. We provide volunteer support, publicity, and a portion of ticket proceeds to the Featured Non-Profit throughout the year. By working together, your non-profit and the Santa Cruz Derby Girls can leverage each other’s audiences to raise money for your cause, and spread the word about our community’s local philanthropies.

HGP's programs primarily take place on a 3-acre organic farm that grows fruit, vegetables, and flowers for the Santa Cruz community.
