St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center is honored to participate in giveBIG San Diego 2014.

On Tuesday, May 6, we will be partnering with The San Diego Foundation to recognize and support the positive work of 300 + nonprofits in the San Diego community.

GiveBIG is an online networking and giving event where nonprofits have the opportunity to gain exposure while bringing people in the San Diego region together to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits in a time-sensitive period. For detailed information on giveBIG CLICK HERE.

 Here’s how the event will work:

From midnight – 11:59 p.m. PST on Tuesday, May 6, the public will be able to make donations on our customized giveBIG event webpage: http://www.givebigsandiego.org/#npo/st-madeleine-sophies-center

Donors choose their donation amount, with a minimum gift starting at $25.

There is no limit as to how much a donor may give to a nonprofit, but only the first $1,000 of every gift will be counted towards incentive pool funds.

The San Diego Foundation and other sponsors have committed $200,000 to incentivize giving during this event, so that nonprofits will receive a proportion of this pool based on how much money they raise during the event. For example, if St. Madeleine’s raises 5% of the total amount raised during the event, St. Madeleine’s will receive 5% of the incentive pool.

GiveBIG is a great way to increase the value of your donation. Every dollar raised helps St. Madeleine’s to continue to provide quality, unique day programs and services to over 400 adults with developmental disabilities year round.

 Please support St. Madeleine’s by participating in giveBIG on Tuesday, May 6!

Volunteers are painting a bright future…

In December, Lea Davis, the Human Resources Manager at Triumph Fabrications-San Diego reached out to St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center (SMSC). Triumph Fabrications is a local manufacturer of complex aerospace components.  Mrs. Davis explained that Triumph Group, Inc. encourages each of their individual companies to contribute to and support their local communities. This year, SMSC was chosen as the beneficiary of the Triumph Fabrications – San Diego’s service project.

When asked how St. Madeleine’s was chosen, Mrs. Davis explained that SMSC was nominated by one of Triumph Fabrications – San Diego’s employees and Mrs. Davis said she often sees our buses around her neighborhood picking up students.  After touring the Center, Triumph Fabrications – San Diego’s Community Project Assessment Team selected several projects that would enhance the campus for our students. The first was to repaint our multipurpose room.

On February 8th, twelve Triumph Fabrications staff arrived at 7:00 am with all the equipment and skills necessary to repaint our 2,700 square foot multipurpose space. In less than 5 hours, the entire project was completed; this included the walls washed, tape along the door way removed, and furniture returned to its area.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Triumph Fabrications- San Diego team and to Mrs. Davis for her efforts in coordinating this event.  Their generous gift of staff time, talent, and materials saved St. Madeleine’s thousands of dollars and that was just the beginning. The group expects to return this month to start beautifying a garden space that will include a water fountain and pergola.

If you have any interest in volunteering, or know of someone who might want to volunteer his/her time to complete a project at St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center, please contact Jessica Dolliver, Volunteer Engagement Coordinator at jdolliver@stmsc.org or 619-442-5129 ext. 333.
