Help San Diego Homeless

What is giv4?

giv4 makes it easy to have an impact on big causes in San Diego like homelessness and climate change. We've worked with experts to curate a collection of nonprofits taking on these big issues.

With one donation, you are supporting a group of vetted San Diego-area non-profits. Each month we tell the story of a different one of the nonprofits, so you gradually learn about the complexities of these big issues.

(100% of all funds received go directly to the San Diego nonprofits).

This giv4 "curated philanthropy" model is a unique initiative of the Jewish Community Foundation San Diego, one of the largest grant makers in San Diego. An important part of our mission is to advance a sustainable, just and vibrant society for all of San Diego, and this initiative is specifically targeted at San Diegans of all backgrounds.
