We had the most incredible honor, being acknowledged by our 45th District Assemblymember, Marie Waldron, as charity of the year of California: said Charity Prestifilippo. “Mrs. Waldron treated us royally, spending the day with us, showing us around the capital, taking photos with us and joining us for a luncheon. The day on Capital Hill in Sacramento was a day we will never forget”.

When you work with your heart, you don’t seek to be acknowledged, you just love what you do. When you are recognized and honored… it’s a Cherry on Top”.

Nonprofits make California communities stronger, yet we’re often so busy that we don’t toot our own horns about the work we’re doing,” explains Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits).

California Nonprofits Day is an opportunity for our elected officials to recognize the good work they see nonprofits doing in their districts, and it also demonstrates the larger collective impact of nonprofits throughout California.”
