There is a lot of talk about Change. But, the reason I believe in the Foundation for Change is because they don't just talk about it; they've made change their mission. For twenty-five years this Foundation has been quietly nurturing emerging progressive leaders RSVP FOR APRIL 5 GALA
and seeding progressive change in San Diego.
I know many of you are supporting progressive candidates for elected office in this campaign season. But politics and policies aren't enough. It takes real people working hard day in and day out to bring about real change. And that's exactly what the Foundation for Change does.
Unlike other philanthropic organizations, the Foundation for Change makes long term investments in emerging progressive leaders and small non-profit organizations in the San Diego and Tijuana region. This is the help they need to climb up onto "the first rung" of the philanthropic ladder.
I hope that you will join me in celebrating their mission, sharing their cause and supporting their success. Please take a minute to learn more about the Foundation for Change and watch the brief video introduction at http://www.foundation4change.org/ and RSVP today for their Gala Celebration!
