Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Foundation's primary goal is to improve the health and nutrition for the children of the mega-region of San Diego and Baja California through the operation of Hospital Infantil de las Californias.

The Foundation helps supports the over 25 pediatric specialty services offered at Hospital Infantil, including surgery, dental care, physical rehabilitation and ophthalmology. As nutrition is a primary part of the Foundation's mission, the Foundation supports the various nutrition education and outreach programs offered by Hospital Infantil.

The Foundation for the Children of the Californias endeavors to serve children on both sides of the border, regardless of their ability to pay. Success means that no child in the San Diego-Baja California mega-region will go without critical medical care.

The Foundation will continue to improve the health and nutrition for the children of the region through its support of Hospital Infantil de las Californias. This support includes fundraising efforts, as well as community outreach and awareness-building.

The Foundation will continue to support Hospital Infantil through fundraising efforts, including grant outreach, mission-driven fundraising events, corporate partnerships and through the generosity of passionate supporters.

The Foundation will also continue to raise awareness for Hospital Infantil through community events and outreach, as well as vital community partnerships.

The Foundation is grateful to have passionate individuals who help advance the mission of improving the health and nutrition for the children of the region.

Committed and hard-working members of the Board of Directors, big-hearted volunteers, compassionate supporters and community advocates all provide the capabilities to advance the mission of the Foundation for the Children of the Californias.

One of the Foundation's largest and most recent accomplishments was the development of Hospital Infantil's new dental and orthodontic clinic. Thanks to the Foundation's 2016 Concert for the Kids fundraiser, and a generous grant from Price Philanthropies, the Hospital was able to open a state-of-the-art dental clinic, which will fill a large void for pediatric dental care in the region. Additionally, thanks to a connection with UABC's orthodontic program, the dental clinic now includes orthodontics for children in need.

Another recent accomplishment is the Foundation's joint telemedicine program with Carlos Santana's The Milagro Foundation. Tiopa Santuario de Luz, a small community health clinic in Autlan, Jalisco, is funded by the Milagro Foundation. Like Hospital Infantil, which is supported by the Foundation for the Children, at Tiopa, no child is ever turned away due to inability to pay. Tiopa can now get specialized medical care through this telehealth endeavor. Doctors at Hospital Infantil provide specialized medical consultations for children at Tiopa via live interactive video conferencing and state-of-the-art telemedicine equipment, of which only general medicine was available at Tiopa prior to this collaboration.

Finally, there is always a new way to improve the health and nutrition for the children of the region. Overnight surgical stays, a separate dental clinic building and an expanded telehealth program are all goals for the Foundation to strive towards. The work will not be done until every child in the San Diego-Baja California mega-region has the medical care they require.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
