The Mission Of The Country Friends Is To Support Human Care Agencies With Emphasis On Those Providing Services To Women, Children, The Elderly And Persons With Disabilities In San Diego County.
The Country Friends is a philanthropic organization with a long history of giving. Since its inception in 1954, The Country Friends has donated nearly $14 million to charitable organizations in San Diego.
The Country Friends provides assistance to nonprofit organizations in San Diego County with an emphasis on women, children, the elderly and people with disabilities. The funds distributed to these organizations are generated through year-long fundraising efforts: Membership, Events, the Consignment Shop located in Rancho Santa Fe and the Annual Art of Fashion Show & Luncheon presented by South Coast Plaza, a long time partner.
The Country Friends conducts on-site visits as part of its overall grants process; grant requests are then reviewed and voted on by The Board of Directors. In this way, we are able to prioritize the capital items that would provide the most fundamental support to their overall mission and to the enrichment of the San Diego community.
All funds raised by The Country Friends stay in San Diego County. We assist many grassroots nonprofit groups as well as larger, more visible organizations.
Join us in giving back to San Diego!
