Following guidelines released by Governor Gavin Newsom and the California Department of Public Health in response to the increasing challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, MADCAPS has cancelled our 2020 Benefit Show. Our decision was based on the fact that it seemed highly unlikely that the Health and Safety mandates would change to a phase that would allow for us to legally run a show with the social distancing guidelines in the foreseeable future. We also have a legal responsibility to give the money that was raised, and is sitting in our bank account, to the charities we serve. They need the funds now more than any other year. 

In the spirit of philanthropic culture, what we hope brought you to MADCAPS in the first place, we are asking that you continue to support our mission: serving the needs of others.  We ask that you turn your ticket purchase into a donation to be distributed to the non-profits MADCAPS supports. These nonprofits are in dire need of financial support and together we can make an immediate impact.  Our tax ID is 33-0105904. If this is your desire, no further action is required.

If at this time you are not able to make the donation, please:

1. Reply to the email from our ticketing database, stating your request for a refund (If you purchased a ticket for another family member or friend you will need to work that out with them as your information is all we have).

2. You should see a refund on your credit card within a couple of weeks for the ticket price minus the processing fee.

3. The deadline to request a refund is Thursday, June 4, 2020. After that, all money will be donated to the more than ten local nonprofits we serve.

*MADCAPS members will not be reimbursed their $70 ticket minimum as that is a membership obligation.

The Board has approved an option to work with any member who may need this money refunded in confidence. Please reach out to our Madcaps President email to work on a plan that is best for you.

Thank you for your continued support of MADCAPS.  Together we are truly practicing the meaning of service.

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, as a private, nonprofit organization, is to involve mothers and daughters in direct service to and support of established philanthropic organizations.”

I am truly delighted to serve as your President for another year.  It is inspiring to work with the wonderful philanthropies, mothers, and daughters of this organization.  I joined MADCAPS as a Junior member and it is here where I knew that philanthropic work was a way of life. Connecting with our community, finding common ground, and making a difference to those in need, allow us to grow and become open to new perspectives and make a positive impact. This year, it is my hope to further educate members around philanthropy, expanding our understanding of the populations we serve and circumstances contributing to or surrounding various populations, thereby deepening member engagement, empathy, and a sense of purpose.   Integrity and empathy are two guiding principles I hope you will use when asked to help out, make adjustments, and support each other.  Show that you can keep an open mind, be flexible, be role models, and be inclusive. If you believe in doing things wholeheartedly, then you are in the right place. 

This is MADCAPS’s 60th Anniversary, and I am so proud to be a part of it’s legacy.  As we proceed through our upcoming year, let’s appreciate how fortunate we are to be a part of MADCAPS and come together to support each other and our community.Thousands of Mothers and Daughters before us have stepped up when asked, and made an enormous impact to those in need. It is now our turn to continue the tradition and expand the livelihood.

The Board of Directors look forward to supporting you as you become genuinely involved and connect to our organization and the organizations it supports.  Linger in the happiness of being a truly active member. Engage with each other, share your talents, take risks, deepen your friendships, reach out to each other, and have fun.  The more you put into MADCAPS the more you get out. Our joint efforts yields significant and meaningful results in our community!
