The Rancho Santa Fe Tea3 Foundation was created by a group of philanthropists and experienced fundraisers who believe that each person has Time, Talent or Treasure to give to the good of the community. Adopting this principle as its mission and driving force, our efforts are focused on organizations dedicated to helping children, military and animals.
Being a project-based organization allows us to operate our fundraising events and activities with no fixed overhead, so as to maximize net proceeds for our beneficiaries. This project-focused approach allows us to keep control and accountability of the funds we raise for each project and maximize net revenue contribution to the beneficiary.
Organizations dedicated to helping children, military and animals submit specific projects that meet one or more of these criteria for consideration and vetting. After selection, our all-volunteer Tea 3 Foundation Board of Directors manages each of the projects from beginning to end, following an established process. This creates a sense of tangible and measurable accomplishment for the participating volunteer members as well as for sponsors and strategic partners who team up with the Tea3 Foundation.
