St. Germaine Auxiliary to the San Diego County Child Abuse Prevention Foundation becomes St. Germaine's Children's Charity

On July 11, 2006, the members of St. Germaine Auxiliary voted unanimously to leave the umbrella of CAPF and form its own nonprofit corporation. St. Germaine Children's Charity is now officially a California nonprofit public benefit corporation.

Though the name is new, the mission remains unchanged: "Working to Stop Child Abuse." Membership dues provide the operating funds so that 100% of all donations and fundraising revenues go directly to those agencies which provide child abuse prevention programs.

St. Germaine sponsors social service agencies responsible for the care, shelter, and treatment of abused and at-risk children from birth to age 18. In addition to annual monetary awards to support program services, we provide clothing, equipment, toys, school supplies, household items, and volunteer time through our approximately 300 members and various community partners.

Fundraising events, such as the upcoming 23rd annual Silver Tea on December 5, membership dues, cash and in-kind donations support the programs. Every contribution is welcomed, appreciated and makes a difference. Since its founding in 1984, St. Germaine has awarded nearly $2,000,000 in cash and an estimated $1,000,000 of in-kind donations to the San Diego community. Members have also contributed countless hours of individual volunteer time.

Child abuse affects each of us either directly or indirectly. In 2005, more than 75,000 cases of suspected child abuse and neglect were investigated by San Diego Child Protective Services. Our community experiences the emotional and economic impact through displaced families, increased medical costs, rising prison populations, and unfilled potential. Your support is a vital component if we are to reach our goal of improving the future of our children.

St. Germaine Children's Charity is coordinating educational programs about the agencies they sponsor with their "Coffee and Conversation" meetings throughout the coming year.
These meetings provide the membership with an opportunity to meet as well as to inform them as to where their funds are allocated. The first "Coffee and Conversation" will be held on Tuesday, September 12, and will feature Angels Foster Family Agency.

"Coffee and Conversation" meetings are open to members, prospective members and those interested in supporting St. Germaine Children's Charity. The fee is $5.00 per person. For more information, please call Sally Irwin at (858) 459-9432.
