  Founding Leadership Committee                        New Leadership Committee


SEEDS San Diego is a giving circle of Christian women with a vision to make a substantial difference in the lives of the distressed.  Founded in 2008 by Marian Drops, Cynthia Engel, Lynda Jeffries, Mary Jenson, Peggy Keck, and Debbie Morales. Their vision was passed along in 2023 to a new Leadership Committee consisting of 7 members: Kirsten Corey, Linda Donley, Angela Kadillak, Esther Poon, Brigit Sheng, Diane Urban, and Elaine Villalpando. Our team continues their legacy of working together to provide the greatest impact.

During the year the SEEDS Leadership Committee will investigate different evangelical Christian nonprofits with ministries here and abroad, including site visits where possible, and present them to the membership for consideration. Members are encouraged to make recommendations to the Committee for consideration.

What We Do

  • We pool our resources and meet twice a year.
  • We meet twice a year: our yearly KickOff in the fall, and a Ministry Discovery Meeting in the spring. Members are encouraged to bring friends to either meeting.
  • Members pledge $1000/$500 a year. All pledges are paid directly to The National Christian Foundation and designated to The SEEDS San Diego Fund.
  • The National Christian Foundation (www.nationalchristian.com) is a nonprofit corporation 501c3. As with all donor advised funds, all SEEDS contributions are the property of NCF. NCF will receipt and invest the pledges made by our members, and direct them to the ministries SEEDS recommends.
  • Members have the opportunity to visit local ministries in the spring in preparation for voting.
  • The Members will vote for the gift recipients—one in the greater San Diego area and one overseas–in the spring. The gifts will be awarded shortly thereafter.
