Angel Faces makes a huge impact in the lives of the girls and young women we serve. We take girls who hurt inside and out, who may be in a spiral of self-pity, anger and depression, and we teach them to get out of the spiral by embracing the pain as a blessing. We show them how tragedy can wake us to life’s richness, how it touches our heart and our soul on many levels.

Questions on how to make a donation? Call Lesia Cartelli at 760-846-6280

We value the privacy of our donors. Angel Faces does not sell, distribute, or exchange any donor information.

Other Donation Options

1. Write a Check

Please make your check payable to Angel Faces.
You can send a check or money order to:

Angel Faces
770 Rancho Santa Fe Road, Suite 10
Encinitas, California 92024

In order for us to mail you a tax receipt, be sure to provide us your contact information, especially your mailing address.

2. Solicit Donations

You can help us raise money by soliciting donations on behalf of our girls. You may use this donation solicitation letter.

3. Give Stock or Other Securities

Gifts of stock, bonds and mutual funds can allow you to support Angel Faces while realizing significant tax benefits such as avoiding capital gain taxes. Consider donating appreciated securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds) to Angel Faces. (Appreciated securities you’ve held for more than one year is the same as giving cash).


With certain limitations, donors may deduct the full fair market value of long-term appreciated securities that have increased in value. The gift of appreciated assets usually avoids tax on the gain. Gifts of securities are deductible up to thirty percent (30%) of a donor’s adjusted gross income with a five-year carryover. And donors may elect to qualify for a fifty percent (50%) adjusted gross income ceiling by reducing the value of the gift by the full amount of its appreciation, deducting only what was originally paid for the asset.

Please contact Lesia Cartelli at 760-846-6280 if you would like to make a gift of stock to Angel Faces.

4. Honor Someone Special

Making a tribute gift is a great way to celebrate the special people in your life, while helping those in need. Give a donation to Angel Faces as a gift in honor of a friend or loved one as a birthday present, holiday gift, or for a special occasion. You can also honor a deceased loved one. The memory and charitable spirit of a departed friend or family member can live on through a donation that will nurture others.

5. Gift Matching
