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. To further this purpose, mothers 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.

MADCAPS fulfills its mission by receiving generous support from community members like you. 

MADCAPS was established in 1960, when a group of 27 mothers met to consider forming a mothers’ and daughters’ organization to support local philanthropies. On September 17, 1960, MADCAPS made its debut at a tea for 50 charter members and their daughters. To date, MADCAPS has distributed over $1,060,000 to local charities, and completed thousands of hours of direct community service.

Where We Are Now
Our membership has grown to include over 200 mothers and their daughters grades 7th through 12th from Hillcrest, Mission Hills, Ocean Beach and Point Loma. Our group participates in year-round activities and fundraising so that all members may fully realize the benefits of involvement in the community. In recent years, MADCAPS has donated over $100,000 annually to philanthropies and completed over 6,500 direct-service volunteer hours.
