A Little Change Makes all the Difference.  Donate to California Hands & Voices Today!

Every dollar counts here at California Hands & Voices! As a non-profit organization, we rely on your donations to increase family and child outcomes. Because we are small your donations go a long way to provide networking and leadership opportunities to families in local communities across California. We do not have paid staff so every dollar is used to host local events throughout California and to help cover unavoidable operating expenses. No donation is too small and we thank you for your support!

Simply put, if it wasn’t for supporters like you, we wouldn’t exist. On behalf of California Hands & Voices and the families we serve, thank you for providing the funds that we need to make a difference in lives right here in California!  Note: Would you like a donor acknowledgment letter? Please contact us at  and we would be happy to write one!

Looking to make a significant donation?

At California Hands & Voices we are lifelong learners! We strive to consistently strengthen our knowledge and experience so that we can better serve our diverse community. One way of achieving that goal is by attending educational conferences in California and throughout the nation. The average total cost to attend a conference is $1000+ per person and the majority of board members can not attend due to that. Conferences are highly effective at helping us to advance as an organization due to the many valuable sessions available. Another benefit is that we network with other empowered parents and passionate professionals across the state and nation which enhances our enthusiasm and energy for months to come!

All donations are needed and appreciated! No matter the amount! However, if you would like to make a significant one-time donation to soften the costs for our board members to attend conferences, you may use the PayPal link above or contact us for more information. To help us track donations please add a note indicating what the donation is for.

We’d be honored to have your support and will bring what we learn back to support the families of California! Thank you in advance!
