For 35 years, St. Germaine Children’s Charity has paved the way for a safer world for young children and vulnerable youth. In 2018, we raised $125,000 bringing, the total support to nearly $4.9 million to local San Diego agencies who work on child abuse prevention. Our goal this year is to double our funding. 

On December 3, 2019, we will host and celebrate our Annual Silver Tea, our signature fundraising event. This elegant afternoon tea will be held at a private estate in La Jolla, made available by a generous and gracious supporter. Over 300 guests will come together to enjoy friends, festive décor, refreshments, a silent auction and of course, tea! One hundred percent of the proceeds from ticket sales, donations and the silent auction will be used to fund local child abuse prevention and treatment programs in San Diego county.


We at St. Germaine Children’s Charity need your valuable support. Your generosity in giving—be it financial support, donating goods or volunteering your time—has enabled our organization to make a positive impact in the lives of thousands of children. Please consider donating to this wonderful fund-raising event and partner in our efforts to stop child abuse.

St. Germaine Children’s Charity is a California nonprofit corporation comprised of approximately 300 members committed to stopping child abuse and improving the lives of abused and neglected children in San Diego. Formerly known as St. Germaine Auxiliary to the Child Abuse Prevention Foundation, we assumed the responsibilities of our own 501(c)(3) organization in August 2006.
