Back to School Program - We want every child to feel like they belong. Every August, we provide more than 200 coastal children the chance to "shop" at our Back to School store.
Grants for the Arts - MCCF provides grants to community artists and school programs to encourage each child's discovery of their inner artist.
Activities - We help children participate in sports, camps, field trips, and safe travel to school. We also help with special activity and college application fees.
Medical & Health — We provide everything from diapers to help keep newborns dry and clean, to hygiene products for teens, and emergency funds for families with local children hospitalized out of the area.
A Helping Hand – We serve youth from Rockport to Gualala and inland to Comptche in Mendocino County, California. We are the safety net for our coastal infants and children.
You Can Make a Difference!
We Need Your Help Now!
We have a waiting list of children who could really benefit from summer activities at Camp Mendocino, Nature Day Camp, Circus Camp and swim passes at C.V. Starr. A key to a great summer for these kids is you! Please help coastal kids play and learn new skills in a safe environment. Summer activities are a key part of what we do to make life brighter and sweeter for local kids facing challenges. You can donate right here on our page or contact us by phone or email for more information.
Donate today, sleep better tonight! One dollar, $3, $5, $10, $50, or $100, or more can make a huge difference in a child's life. It takes a village and we are so glad you are part of ours!
