OUR QUEST TO CHANGE THE WORLD...

 OUR MISSION 

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.

Our Role

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 

Fundraising

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: 

  • September 17th we will host our Annual Fundraiser and Program which will be offered as a hybrid opportunity due to the ongoing challenges with Covid. We would love for you to join us either in person or virtually. Please save the date and re-visit our site in June to purchase tickets to the event! 

  • 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! 

  • Shop on Amazon Smile and select Cartias Creek as your nonprofit choice. 0.5% of the proceeds to your purchase will be donated to Cartias. This is an easy way to give to Caritas year round with every day purchases. 

  • November or each year, marks the start to our Annual Appeal. Your generous donations will help us succeed in impacting our youth by providing camperships to youth in need!

  • GIVING TUESDAY takes place in November of each year. Please follow Caritas on Facebook and Instagram so you can donate to our program through this annual campaign.
