Providing a Hopeful Pathway for Children in Need since 1994
Central Coast Funds for Children was established to benefit children in need of special services in San Luis Obispo County. We are a publicly supported, non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization. All donations are tax-deductible (Identification No. 77-0338513), and all donations stay in our county to help local children.
CCFC has no paid staff – all activities are run by volunteers. Less than 6% of the income raised goes to expenses. Funds are raised through private and business donations, dues and special fundraising events. All monies are generated by volunteer membership of Central Coast Funds For Children. Applications for these funds are received throughout the year.
From our 1994 start until 2012 the funds granted total over a Million Dollars ($1,213,915). This year – 2013 – CCFC continues to raise funds to benefit children in need in San Luis Obispo County. Funds are granted to local non-profit organizations (through a grant application process) to benefit children’s programs in San Luis Obispo County.
CCFC raises monies through annual support drives, as well as several fundraising events throughout the year, as well as ongoing community projects. There are two prime signature events; CCFC Annual Soup Supper held each September and our newest event, Christmas in November. CCFC members also volunteer at several community events held primarily for children: Children’s Day in the Plaza and Morro Bay Kite Festival are just two of them. CCFC also participates with local business merchants to earn a percentage of profits for the day; California Pizza Kitchen, Applebee’s and New Frontiers market to name a few. Members also volunteer each year at Camp Reach for the Stars (one of our many Grant Recipients); this camp is for children with cancer and their families. CCFC also makes “Sunshine Sacks” for the Family Care Network.
We invite you to join us as we continue our goal to raise Donations and Grant that money to agencies that help children in San Luis Obispo County.
