Monthly Promises

Sustained gifts help ease the uncertainty of fundraising in difficult times.  Your monthly promise becomes a reliable source of funding for critical programs such as Guardian Scholars, Camp Connect, and the Polinsky Children’s Center.

  • By spreading your gift over 12 months, you may find that you are able to increase your total giving, which will help even more children and youth in need.
  • The monthly gifts become a reliable source of sustainable funding for programs and services for foster youth and abused, abandoned and neglected children.

Take the hassle out of remembering birthdays, anniversaries, and other special events – Promises2Kids can manage your gift giving! Throughout the year, we are presented with many gift giving occasions – birthdays, anniversaries, Mother's Day, Father's Day, graduations, among others – and with each occasion comes the dilemma of what to give. How great to give a gift you know will change lives, and a gift that will bring a rewarding smile to the recipient?

A donation to Promises2Kids in honor of a loved one is the perfect gift for every occasion!  Your gift will help a child living in foster care in San Diego County overcome the hardships he or she has faced and create a brighter future for foster youth!
