Testimonials from our Nonprofit Partners
"As a small nonprofit with only two staff members, working with Hearts for San Diego has been a very efficient use of our time. Karen is an absolute pleasure to work with. She works hard and kept us updated throughout the process. Hearts for San Diego organized a fundraiser event for us. They took care of all the details, put together a very successful raffle and there was a great turnout to the event- all with minimal effort on our part! I highly recommend their services to any organization who needs to raise funds. We look forward to working with them in the future."
~ Mandy Sackett, San Diego County Chapter Manager
The Animal Pad was lucky enough to be the charity beneficiary of Hearts for San Diego's "Dressed Up Pup Party" in January 2017 and we had an incredible experience! We are used to putting so much work into events and it was such a nice treat to have all the work done on our behalf! It was incredibly well organized, the volunteers were great, all the attendees had a great time for a great cause. We made so many amazing connections at that event and there was even media coverage! We are beyond grateful for the work that Hearts For San Diego does, not only for us, but tons of local nonprofits! Keep up the amazing work and we look forward to doing more events together in the future!

I would like to thank Hearts for San Diego for hosting the Bow Wow Beer Bash to benefit Tender Loving Canines Assistance Dogs. It is so heartening when we receive a gift from a generous donor allowing us to give the gift of independence to one more deserving veteran or child with autism. The event was so well organized and so much fun. Your gift extends much farther than just the proceeds, as we were able to meet many people and also expand our support base. I thank you so much for your help. I want to share a video of a recent graduation from our POOCH prison-training program.
More people than ever need the strength and comfort of TLCAD’s important services. Because of you, we are transforming lives through service dogs and providing a bridge to independence for those in need. Your gift will be used wisely.

"Hearts for San Diego went above and beyond to partner up and support my non-profit, A Night to Remember Prom for students with special needs. Karen Moy and her team were professional to work with and have HUGE hearts to give back to many different causes throughout San Diego. The Casino Night fundraiser they threw was not only a success, it was a ton of fun! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Hearts for San Diego for helping us raise money to throw a first-class Prom for students with special needs."

A Night to Remember Prom
Karen Moy and her fabulous team at Hearts For San Diego deserve a mountain of kudos for all that they do for our community. Recently, Karen & Co. hosted the Comedy For A Cause: Veterans of Comedy event at The Comedy Store in La Jolla. The complementary Asian Tapas and Sushi were amazing and the lineup of Veteran Comedians were a DEFCON 1 riot! We had a great time and the funds they raised for Wounded Warrior Homes are a boon to the organization. It is difficult to operate a charitable organization in difficult times and I cannot express how much we appreciate the help of Hearts for San Diego. Karen and all her crew are nothing short of amazing: a professional and efficient team that made the whole thing seem effortless and FUN! We could not serve the veterans we do without the support of generous, energetic people like Karen and Hearts For San Diego. Thank you!

We were so excited to be selected as the beneficiary of "Hearts for San Diego " Halloween event this year! We met with Karen, the founder and she had so many great ideas and connections that made the event a huge success. Lucky Pup Dog Rescue is small, neighborhood rescue for homeless, orphaned shelter dogs who are rescued from Southern California's highest kill shelters and fundraising can be a such a challenge.
It was so nice work to with a consummate professional who covered all the bases ~ from ticket sales, sponsors, to decorations, to choosing vendors, and even having a professional photographer, videographer and MC at the event.
On the evening of the event, we knew we were in good hands! The volunteer staff of Hearts For San Diego was nothing short of amazing, keeping an eye on all of the details. In the end, the entire event came off without a hitch, and we know all the dogs had a fantastic time ~ as did their moms and dads! Thank you!

Hands down, best experience for a fundraiser yet! Hearts for San Diego planned, organized and held a amazing event for my organization, Special Needs Playdate. Karen paid great attention to detail and arranged a spectacular "Comedy for a Cause" event filled with raffles, auctions, food, drinks and a night full of laughs. Special Needs Playdate sincerely appreciates Karen and Hearts for San Diego for all their hard work and dedication to ensure each charity receives a experience like no other.

Amazing, amazing, amazing!! We were 2017 beneficiary of the Toast to the Coast event. From the very beginning while planning, throughout the follow up and of course, the entire event itself: Karen Moy and her team from Hearts for San Diego did an outstanding job.
The event drew a huge crowd and the venue was perfect! We had an amazing time at the event and were able to raise a great amount for our cause. We cannot thank Karen and her team enough for what they put on for us!! We are looking forward to work together again for upcoming events! Much love!

I want to give a huge shout out to everyone at Hearts for San Diego for hosting Comedy for a Cause at the Comedy Palace. Comedy for a Cause was an event H4SD hosted help to bring attention and awareness to suicide while also benefiting Umtr2me - You Matter To Me.
I couldn't have been more excited to have the opportunity to partner with such an amazing group of volunteers. I'd also like to give a special thank you to Karen Moy for her passion and dedication to helping out local non profits.
Thank you Karen and H4SD, You Matter To Us!!

On behalf of the Cammies & Canines team, we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks for the partnership you provided. Thanks to your team’s efforts we were able to raise over $1,800 in a single evening! Your team made the fundraising effort easy, fun and special to all the supporters who attended. Your attention toward the Bow Wow Beer Bash was second to none and the personal touch you added was meaningful and appreciated. We know you and your team are busy planning multiple fundraising events, so it was really touching to see how you treated our event as if it were your own and gave it special attention throughout the entire process. Thank you also for the detailed accounting you provided at the event completion which was well above and beyond our expectations.
It is our belief at Cammies and Canines that any non-profit not taking advantage of the services provided by Hearts for San Diego is missing out on a rewarding opportunity. Fundraising at times isn’t easy or fun, but your team handled every aspect of this event which allowed Cammies and Canines to relax and enjoy ourselves; which is a rare opportunity while helping us raise the most money ever for an event! Thank you!!
We can’t say thank you enough for the love, care and commitment provided by your organization, we could not have been this successful without you!!
