There are many wonderful organizations in San Diego County that serve disadvantaged, but most of them are underfunded.  Funds to support crisis intervention, preparation for emancipation, foster-care placement, mentoring programs, and access to mental health services are desperately needed to make a difference in the lives of these children. With so many wonderful organizations in need, why choose us? Here at Day for Change we focus on helping smaller organizations that do a great work with children but are usually underfunded to continue to support their mission. These not well-known institutions need help to continue to support our San Diego children.


At Day for Change we believe the people and businesses in San Diego care about these children and want to help but do not know where to start.


By unifying our efforts, we can all make a difference and create hope in the lives of thousands of children so that each and every one of them can experience love and realize their dreams


100% of all funds raised will be awarded to local charities that focus on making a difference in the lives of these children. Day for Change will provide financial support to committed charities that have demonstrated success in making a positive impact in the lives of these disadvantaged children.


Day for Change is a 501(c)(3) public charity, nonprofit organization founded by leading financial management professionals across San Diego County.

For the past 20 years Day for Change has donated over $1 million dollars to San Diego organizations in support of disadvantaged children thanks to our generous donators.

Get Involved


At Day for Change we believe we all can do more for underprivileged children. We want to make sure everyone has a chance to get involved and do their part for the San Diego community. Whether as individuals or as a business we can contribute for a better life for these disadvantaged children by unifying our efforts so that each one of them can experience love, have a better chance at life and realize their dreams.
