Near & Dear is a Shop Local fundraising program for California schools, youth sports, and non-profits.

Near & Dear supports artisans, makers, businesses and creators who LIVE WHERE YOU LIVE, all the while raising vital funds for schools and organizations in need. Near & Dear is neighbors helping neighbors by boosting and building the economy in YOUR town. And while much-needed fundraising is our ultimate goal, what makes us really smile is knowing that we are connecting, supporting and creating prosperous communities across California for generations to come.
