Promoting and strengthening philanthropic impact in our communities
Message from NCPC Board President, Javier Guerrero

Happy Holidays from the North County Philanthropy Council! 
Thank you for your support throughout this year as NCPC continued to connect philanthropic and nonprofit leaders to promote and strengthen philanthropy in our community. This year we witnessed significant connections being made at our Luncheons, Connectors and thru our new Mentorship Program. Our year ended with an incredibly inspiring Volunteer Awards Luncheon where 650 community members celebrated volunteers who make this world a better place. I was proud to be a part of being able to thank and recognize 95 volunteers from every sector of nonprofits.
It has been an absolute honor for me to serve as the NCPC Board President these past two years. Thank you for your participation and moreover your commitment and enthusiasm to help achieve the mission of NCPC.

I'm excited to share that the NCPC Board of Directors has elected Shannon Stubblefield of North County Lifeline as our 2019 Board President. Shannon's passion, intelligence, kindness and vast experience will serve our region well. I look forward to supporting as Past-President, and once again want to thank you for all you do for our community!

Volunteer Opportunities
Big Brothers and Big Sisters of San Diego County
Plug in to Big Brothers Big Sisters to AMPLIFY your impact as a volunteer! In just a few hours a month, you can empower a child to achieve their dreams.
You can volunteer in the community in many different ways, but very few are as rewarding and impactful as being a “Big”. Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable things you’ll ever do. Not to mention, one of the most fulfilling. You have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better, and the best part is, it’s actually a lot of fun. You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do.
