Calaveras Mentoring Foundation
The Calaveras Mentoring Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, Tax ID #80-0512251, and all donations are fully tax deductible.
Where does my donation go? All contributions directly support the safety and success of our program participants and friendships. Your donation goes toward recruiting and screening volunteer mentors and matching, monitoring and supporting mentors and mentees with training, field trips and mentor counsel.
Become a Friend Forever
An important step in securing the future of our Mentoring Programs is our pledge program for sustained giving. We have named our program "Friends Forever" because that is what both the Mentoring Programs and the Mentoring Foundation are working to create. In this program you may set up a monthly recurring donation. This is an easy way for you to split up your yearly donation while giving steady support to our Mentoring Programs as a FRIEND FOREVER.
Another Event-full Year!
A great Party is in the guest list...
Thanks to our generous family of mentoring donors, this year's PARTY was another great success. Including sponsorship, the live auction, the treasure chest and the raffle, the event netted $20,000 for the Calaveras Youth Mentoring Program. We were able to meet our pledge of funds to the Mentoring Program and are very grateful that our community continues to support our promising young people.
The Mokelumne River Rafting Adventure raised almost $2,000!
Congratulations to our wonderful friends at O.A.R.S. on the Wild and Scenic designation for this beautiful local river. O.A.R.S. has been sharing this resource with our supporters for more than ten years by donating specially-permitted, guided rafting trips, and now it is protected for generations to come. It's been a fun and memorable ride!
Everything is just DUCKY!
The Duck Races was a fabulous day of fun in the sun and Murphys Creek. We raised almost $3,500 and shared some great prizes with your generous support!

Be a Mentor
Do you have 2 hours a week to spend on fun activities with a young person? The Calaveras Youth Mentoring Program is our program for kids in 1st through 12th grades, and the SWAG program is for young adults ages 16-21. The first step to apply or learn more about either program is to attend a one-hour Info Session.
Not ready to mentor yet? It takes more than mentors for matches to happen! Check out the Calaveras Youth Mentoring Program page for a list of other ways to get involved.
