Manny Rubio credits his years at the University of San Diego with deepening his faith. After graduating in 1994 with a bachelor’s degree in International Relations, he served for one year with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. That year of service inspired him to dedicate his life to nonprofit work.
In 1997, he graduated from Georgetown University with a master’s degree in Public Policy. He has worked in the nonprofit sector in Washington, D.C., San Francisco and, since 1999, in the San Diego area. From 2008 until accepting his current position, he was director of grants and communications for the Sweetwater Union High School District in Chula Vista.
As the Foundation’s new CEO, Rubio sees room for expansion. In particular, he hopes to have all of the diocese’s almost 100 parishes and nearly 50 elementary and high schools with an endowment fund of their own. Unlike a donation made directly to the parish or school, which will help with immediate needs, he explained, an endowment provides support in perpetuity.
Manny Rubio and his family have been parishioners of St. Pius X’s in Chula Vista and Corpus Christi in Bonita.
The Catholic Community Foundation of San Diego is the philanthropic organization for faithful Catholics who desire to be good stewards of the gifts they’ve received on earth so they can have a lasting impact and leave a legacy. We look forward to hearing from you.
