Solutions for Change joins first annual San Diego Gives!

Solutions for Change is so excited to be part of San Diego Gives. This is the first annual day of giving for San Diego County, and 100% of all money raised will stay local to help the community we know and love. Be sure to save the date for September 9, 2021!

We all know how important it is to eat local and shop local – we are excited to join the movement to GIVE local. This special day will shine a light on the tremendous work of nonprofit organizations throughout San Diego County, and connect people to the local causes they care about most.

Here’s how it works. San Diego Gives is a 24-hour online fundraiser. More than 100 nonprofits are participating. To be approved, each organization needed to meet the following criteria:

  1. Demonstrate a commitment to serving the greater San Diego area, responding to the needs of the community with a local-first approach, and making a tangible impact.
  2. Represent a variety of populations and causes served by your programs and services, including but not limited to age, race, zip code, and diverse communities, and create an environment of equity and inclusion.
  3. Present a compelling appeal to donors, commit to keeping all funds raised in the greater San Diego area, and have a proven track record of fiscal responsibility.

"In this ever evolving storyline that we call Solutions for Change, you are the hero! Solutions would not exist without folks like you, willing to help us create the life transforming opportunities for the families we serve. Whether you give a little, a lot, or somewhere in between, we are so very grateful for you!" - Chris Megison, President & CEO, Solutions for Change

You can support Solutions for Change on September 9th (early donations count towards our total as well), by visiting our page.

Thank you for being part of this special day!
