San Diego philanthropists Hélène and George Gould are the inaugural founders of the President’s Circle, and have pledged a $250,000 matching gift that will allow all gifts from new donors to have twice the impact on wishes for kids with life-threatening medical conditions. Donors who give $50,000 or more will join the Goulds in the exclusive President’s Circle.
Hélène and George Gould have supported the mission of Make-A-Wish San Diego for over a decade, leading extraordinary efforts in the organization’s fundraising goals. Hélène is also a founding member of the W.I.S.H Circle of Make-A-Wish San Diego, the dynamic women’s leadership group that supports its vision and mission. Hélène’s involvement in the organization was inspired by the memory of her young nephew, Franck Alain Levy Dreyfus, who passed away 14 years ago. Hélène, who is originally from Southern France, is a fashion designer and a real estate investor, and George is a private investor.
“When Make-A-Wish San Diego told us about their goal to be able to reach each and every child in our great city, we were compelled to make a difference in the lives of these children,” said Hélène Gould. “George and I have pledged to match every dollar up to $250,000 for this initiative. We encourage others to consider donating and joining the President’s Circle to help make an even greater impact in San Diego, so that ALL of our local kids can have their wishes come true.”
Please help by contributing any amount you can - $30, $50, $100 or even more. Every dollar you donate can help Make-A-Wish kids renew their courage and find a turning point in their lives.
Thank you for your support!
