Raul V. Castillo 1968 – 2022
With great sadness we share the news that Raul Castillo passed away peacefully at his home on May 5, 2022 after a valiant fight against cancer.
Raul was born on February 14, 1968, in Manila, Philippines. His family immigrated to Echo Park, California in 1974, later settling in Arleta, California. Raul found his niche in professional fundraising as he worked with multiple arts and education organizations, and he was eventually entrusted with the role of Executive Director of the Los Angeles Valley College Foundation in 2001, where he continued to serve until the time of his passing. A former AFP GSFV President, Raul played a significant role in the chapter’s growth and development over the years. He had a knack for building genuine connections. Well, done faithful servant.
A memorial service will be held at the Old North Church at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills on June 2, 2022, at 5pm. Raul wished that donations be made in his honor to the LAVC "Raul Castillo Memorial Fund" supporting student scholarships. Please visit http://www.lavcfoundation.org/givenow.php.
