The Southgate Foundation
Thanks for donating to one of the “Top 4” most frequent donations above! Here is a summary of our Philanthropic efforts around the world, since 2016.
PLEASE DONATE today toward our very aggressive Program to help Families In Need. We need your help to help them.
Many do not get government aid. They depend upon YOU to help them as they are desperately in need. Many are ill, or taking care of sick family members and unable to work.
Due to high unemployment, pandemic issues, debilitated family members, and other societal, health or economical stresses, these people are clinging to life to survive. With your help they stand a chance. With your help, they have Hope.
We are very involved with domestic homelessness and natural disaster efforts the world over, wherever we can make a difference, we act with the resources we have available.
How It Began
Every year we use to buy toys and distribute them to needy children, especially in hospitals.
One year, we looked around with fresh eyes and saw a growing population of homeless in our own city in United States.
We decided then to help them as they were far more needy. … But I didn’t want to call them the usual words people used such as “transients” or “bums” or “homeless.”
That was not a title of dignity. It was not befitting God’s People.
I realized they were our “neighbors” and that is how we should address them. And thus “Breakfast with our Neighbors” began.
We put out some posts about our intentions and told friends.
Then it went viral in a way. … Supplies and donations poured into us and before you knew it, it was a large effort.
On the day of our breakfast, we had hundreds of people join us. We passed out sleeping bags, toiletries, clothing, food items, water, hot meals and on and on and on.
The Orange County Register, in California, joined us and we made front page.
We continued to help as we could, and eventually answered the call to help other people in other countries around the world.
The Southgate Foundation Project 2022
Some of our members calculated that since we started we have passed out 120,000 meals to children and their family’s in poverty areas of the U.S. and the world.
When we first started, we created something viral. With your help we can grow that and make an effective difference in this world by helping God’s Children and showing them that God* is here, He does care, and that they will be provided for despite their trying circumstances.
We ask nothing of the people we help. A sampling of their pictures show the effort that we put into this.
Will you help us help more children and their families?
