Heart in HandsCatherine’s Kids is a non-for profit ministry 501( C) (3) and all donations are tax deductible. You will receive at year end a letter from us detailing your annual donations for tax deduction purposes.

100% of all donations go to benefit the children’s wellbeing.

We have higher costs of care per child when compared to other orphanages. We keep a staff per shift at a ratio of one caregiver per four kids. This translates to 100% more personnel at Catherine’s than a traditional orphanage. Additionally, we have high pharmaceutical and medical expenses; ranging from doctors’ visits to surgeries. Some surgeries are  provided by physicians as pro bono , but not all surgeries or hospital operating room access is free.

There are several ways you can participate when it comes to donations. You can sponsor a child with monthly scheduled donations or you can give annually. If you decide to sponsor a child on a monthly basis, you can do so by selecting a sponsorship of $100.00 – $500.00 or $1,000.00. A monthly sponsorship of $100 will cover meals, clothing and learning supplies. A sponsorship of $500.00 will provide additionally the required medicines and doctor’s visits. A sponsorship of $1,000.00 will additionally cover surgeries and medical rehabilitation therapies.

Our Mission and Loyalty to Donors

Catherine’s Kids orphanage serves the local and international community without discrimination on the basis of age, political affiliation, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability type or religious belief. Our mission is dedicated to transform the lives of abandoned special needs and medically fragile children.

We are grateful for any donation we receive. We contact all donors and provide information as to how their donation will be used. We strongly believe that through our sponsors donations the lives of our children will be transformed as well as the life of our sponsors. We think of our sponsors as  members of Catherine’s Family and we keep in contact with them through monthly eNewsletters, phone calls and personal visits. We encourage our sponsors to visit Catherine’s Kids and will arrange trips to Rosarito, Mexico (only 30 minutes south of the San Diego border) so that sponsors get to meet the kids and how they are progressing thanks to their support.

Donors are welcome to visit our Facebook Page where we post daily events and activities taking place at Catherine’s.
