Mothers and Daughters Club Assisting Philanthropies (MADCAPS)

Welcome to our website.  This is our portal of communication to the public and our membership. "The purpose of  MADCAPS is to involve mothers and daughters in direct service to and  support of established philanthropic organizations. To further this purpose,  mothers will actively nurture the training of their daughters in philanthropic  commitments, teaching personal responsibility, as well as responsibility to  the needs of others, so that all members may fully realize the benefits of  involvement in the community."

Greetings fellow members!

It has been such an honor serving alongside former President Julie Connolly the past year, who successfully navigated a super bumpy ride with such grace. With the COVID-19 pandemic now behind us (hopefully for good), I look forward to an exciting year of service and friendship!

About me: I'm a Point Loma native, former junior member (class of '86) and have worked in higher education since 2002. My husband (Sean) and I have two daughters (Sara '21 and Cate '24). I enjoy theater, hiking, and baking bread (Yep, that pandemic, go figure!).

With gratitude,

Judy Adelizzi Parker
MADCAPS President 2021-2022

In light of the Delta Variant/pandemic and safety of our membership, the MADCAPS board wants to address the following Covid-19 protocols going forward:

  • We are following the protocols other organizations have in place that are in compliance with the state guidelines.
  • If you are having Covid-19 symptoms (i.e. fever), PLEASE STAY HOME.
  • You are not required to attend any MADCAPS events in-person that are beyond your level of comfort.
  • Similar to the 2020 year, we are offering alternative ways you can volunteer, whether it is for philanthropy work or in support of the benefit show.
  • It is your responsibility to follow the philanthropy’s requirements if you choose to participate.
  • There are many at-home volunteer projects already available to you. Contact your philanthropy representative for more information.

We appreciate your flexibility, patience and attention! Please feel free to contact me or other board members as we all navigate through this challenging time together. 

We're committed to making 2021-2022 memorable for all!
