OUR QUEST TO CHANGE THE WORLD...
Caritas Creek's purpose is to help young people discover the connection between all living things; to build bridges between diverse socioeconomic and ethnic groups; and to foster in youth a deeper connection to the natural environment, to self, to the Spirit of Love, and to community.
We were founded in 1975, and spent 35 years facilitating our program, Now our role is to:
* License our environmental education program to qualified organizations
* Raise funds to support the growth, success, and diversity of students in our programs; and to support other programs offered to Caritas students which reinforce learning (such as CYO summer camp)
* Validate and support consistent program quality and alignment to our mission
* Award financial aid to families and schools who otherwise would not be able to afford to participate
The Caritas Creek Board of Directors' goal is to ensure that Caritas is affordable to students of all income levels, and youth who would like to attend summer camp.
We have exciting fundraising opportunities that take place throughout the year. Help us fulfill our Mission by participating in our efforts:
Every Fall we host an Annual Gala Event to raise campership funds for youth. Details for the 2023 event coming soon!
Do you or someone you know work for a company that offers a match fund donation program? If so, we encourage all able supporters to donate to Caritas Creek through your company so funds you provide can be doubled for Caritas Creek!
