Legacy Giving 

Be a Part of Mama’s Future

By including Mama’s Kitchen in your will and estate plans, you can make a lasting impact on the lives of those affected by critical illnesses like HIV/AIDS, Cancer, Chronic Kidney Disease, and Diabetes. Mama’s Kitchen has been serving the San Diego community for over 30 years and is committed to providing life-saving nutrition for decades to come. Your gift will provide a significant resource to secure the longevity of our programs and services.

Legacy Club

Our Legacy Club is a group of generous donors who have named Mama’s Kitchen as a charitable beneficiary in their estate planning.

Members of the Legacy Club receive an array of benefits, ranging from our donor newsletter and annual report to meetings with key Mama’s Kitchen leaders and invitations to special events and seminars.

Donate in Honor of Someone

There are occasions throughout the year when you want to honor a loved one, a close friend, a colleague, or another person who has enriched your life in some special way.

Making a charitable donation in memory of someone who has touched your life or in honor of someone who is celebrating a milestone provides vital support to the important mission of Mama’s Kitchen – providing essential nutrition to those who are affected by critical illnesses in San Diego County.

No matter the life celebration, a tribute gift to Mama’s Kitchen touches many lives. Make a donation or set up a personalized fundraising page to honor a loved one.

For more information, contact Chief Development Officer Jenna Novotny at 619.233.6262 or jenna@mamaskitchen.org.
