Hearts for San Diego is a 100% volunteer-based 501c3 nonprofit that organizes FUNdraising events and activities on behalf of our local nonprofits. Each event spotlights a different cause and nonprofit, and provides a platform to connect communities and local businesses who share a passion for giving back. Our dedicated team of volunteers donate their time, skills and expertise to increase awareness and support for the inspiring work of our local charities, and provide extra breathing room so they can stay focused on their missions.
