The Coastal Music & Arts Foundation is all about showing kids they can use their talents to change the world!
The Coastal Music & Arts Foundation first came to being as the parent organization for the North County Children’s Choir. As things have progressed, the CMAF now oversees many performing arts initiatives in North County San Diego, including Christmas 4 Kidz.
A portion of our C4K event proceeds will also go towards continuing the work of the CMAF.
Our hope is to inspire the next generation of musicians and performing artists, train them and then give them a chance to shine!
A Step Beyond is a wonderful organization serving youth and their families living at or below the poverty line with free after-school dance classes, academic support, and social services.
They’re based in Escondido and work to create deep, meaningful, and lasting relationships that will ensure the artistic, academic, and social-emotional development of students. ASB makes a ten-year commitment to support students and their families from 3rd grade to high school graduation and beyond.
We love how they integrate the arts along with serving kids in need and are happy to help sponsor them with the proceeds from Christmas 4 Kidz!
The Shine Project Foundation is all about serving children with special needs. They partner with community organizations to offer Beach Days, Camps and Arts & Dance Events that give kids with special needs an opportunity to be involved in activities not usually available to them.
We are excited to be partnering with Shine. A portion of ticket sales will help scholarship kids in for a Music & Arts Camp this Spring.
We believe reaching out beyond our own community to have an impact in the world around us is very important. We’re all connected in our humanity…and we love the way World Vision serves children across the globe.
The founders of C4K, Andy & Pam Allen, have been supporters and advocates for children through working with World Vision over the past 20 years. They’ve traveled to Africa and Central America in their efforts with World Vision and continue to bring awareness to the needs of kids around our world.
We proudly support World Vision as one of our Christmas 4 Kidz charities.
We are huge fans of the work Got Your Back San Diego is doing here in our community!
GYB sends backpacks of food home each weekend with children who have been identified as homeless or food-insecure…kids who don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
This year, a portion of ticket sales will go to GYB to make a difference in the lives of children right in our backyard.
