The President’s Circle
San Diego philanthropists Hélène and George Gould are the inaugural founders of Make-A-Wish San Diego’s new President’s Circle, which aims to grant wishes for 100 percent of eligible San Diego kids (it is estimated that grants are currently met for only two-thirds of local children with a life-threatening illness). Inspired by the memory of Hélène’s young nephew, Franck Alain Levy Dreyfus, who passed away 14 years ago, the Goulds have supported Make-A-Wish for over a decade, leading extraordinary efforts in the organization’s fundraising goals.
“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,” says Hélène. “George and I have pledged to match every dollar up to $250,000 for this initiative.” With a gift of $50,000 or more, President’s Circle membership benefits include invitations to exclusive events, commemorative items, and the fulfillment that accompanies making an indelible impact on the life of a child.
