The California Job’s Daughters Foundation, Inc. is a 501 [c][3] non-profit corporation established January
31, 1996 to provide financial support for the Job’s Daughters of California. The objectives of the Founda-
tion are to provide educational opportunities, leadership development of adults and youth, support of
H.I.K.E., the Job’s Daughters Philanthropic project and to promote the Order in California. All contribu-
tions to the Foundation are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. This allows us to solicit public
support of charitable gifts for income tax purposes. We are able to solicit grants from businesses, inclu-
sion in wills, life insurance, trusts and to be a beneficiary of an estate for tax purposes. We can reserve
stocks and bonds, annuities or insurance, as well.

The Foundation operates independently from the Grand Guardian Council of California, (GGC) but financially
assists the various activities of Job’s Daughters in California through the GGC.



From the Desk of the Secretary:

The job of secretary certainly has its rewards. I enjoy all the notes sent in with donations espe-
cially those honoring someone or memorials that show the love for a departed one. You can
certainly see the difference Job's Daughters has made in many lives because of the volunteers
who give or gave so freely of themselves and their time, money, compassion, and knowledge.

      Happy Spring to all.

             REPORT ON PAST SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS FROM BETHEL 148 AUBURN
In the past several years, the members of Bethel No. 148 Auburn have been grateful to receive many scholarships from Masonic
Bodies, including the California Job’s Daughters Foundation. Each of these scholarships has contributed to the girls’ successes and
accomplishments in college as well as their endeavors following graduation. All of these girls have been very involved in Job’s
Daughters and have contributed much to Bethel No. 148. All are also Past Honored Queens. We would like to share with you some
of their successes as a way of showing how much you have helped us in our lives. Thank you for awarding so much to the deserv-
ing members of our Bethel! Four of our members have received foundation scholarships recently, and have made great use of
them.

Megan Goudy is attending William Jessup University. She is majoring in Psychology, with a minor in English. Currently, Megan
is taking a full course load and maintains a 4.0 grade point average. She hopes to attend graduate school after graduation to become
a research psychologist. Because of the close proximity of her school to her Bethel, Megan has remained very involved with Job’s
Daughters and has decided to run for Miss California Job’s Daughters this year.

Kristen Lohse graduated from UC Davis in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. While at Davis, Kristen was a mem-
ber of the Davis Honors Challenge Program; a member of the Psi Chi honor society; a member and an officer in Prytanean
Women's Honor Society; board member in Colleges Against Cancer; and was on the Relay For Life committee of UC Davis, serv-
ing as an Event Chair for the 2009 Relay For Life event. In her sophomore year, Kristen began volunteering at the MIND Institute
as part of the Fragile X Research Team. This continued through her junior year when she was hired part time as a research assis-
tant. Upon graduation, Kristen was hired full time as an Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator for the Fragile X team. There she
helped manage the clinical trials for Fragile X syndrome until September 2010, when she moved to San Francisco. Currently, Kris-
ten works with autistic children providing ABA based therapy in home sessions, as well as supporting them in school and in after
school programs. In Fall 2012, she plans on starting graduate school to gain her Ph. D. in Clinical Psychology as she continues her
inspiring work with autistic children.

Erica Lowe graduated from California State University, Chico in 2008 with a degree in Exercise Physiology. Following gradua-
tion, Erica attended graduate school at University of the Pacific from which she graduated in September 2010, becoming a Doctor
of Physical Therapy. Currently, Erica lives in L.A. working as a Pediatric Physical Therapist at Pediatric Therapy Network - a non-
profit organization that helps children with special needs. Erica was very involved in Bethel No. 148 until her majority and after-
wards joined our Executive Bethel Guardian Council for a time. Now, she visits as often as she can.

Jessica Lowe graduated from California State University, Chico in 2008 with a degree in Nutrition and Food Science with an op-
tion in General Dietetics, with a Minor in Chemistry. Following graduation, Jessica attended graduate school at University of Cali-
fornia, Los Angeles from which she graduated in June 2010, gaining her Master’s in Public Health. Currently, Jessica is keeping
herself busy with a fellowship, an internship, and a job. All three take place at University of Southern California, University Center
for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. With the Leadership Education in Neurodevel-
opmental Disabilities (LEND) Fellowship, Jessica gains long-term, graduate level interdisciplinary training and provides interdisci-
plinary services and care to improve the health of infants, children, and adolescents with disabilities. In her Pediatric Dietetic In-
ternship, Jessica will complete at least 1,200 hours of practical supervised experience through an accredited program before sitting
for the registration examination to become a Registered Dietitian. Additionally, Jessica serves as a Project Coordinator for Project
Access, which improves access to care for children with epilepsy.

Other girls in our Bethel have made great strides with the help of other Job’s Daughters and Masonic scholarships.

Lindsay Mulsow is currently attending American River College and working at the mall, while still remaining active in our Bethel
and attending events and fundraisers. She was elected by the members to become a Grand Bethel Officer for the 2011-2012
year. Next year, she plans to transfer to the Art Institute of California in Orange County.

Ala Navratil is attending Sierra College and is majoring in Psychology.

Danielle Malosh attended the University of Portland and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a minor in His-
tory. She currently serves in the United States Army as a First Lieutenant and just finished a tour in Iraq. She hopes to pursue a
master’s degree in the near future.

The Foundation is participating in a new fund raiser program called CARS 4 CAUSES. They are a
charity dedicated to helping charities attain additional funds through a Vehicle Donation Program.
This is a Partnership program. There is absolutely no obligation or liability to the Foundation. In
addition to it benefitting the Foundation, the contributor receives an acknowledgment required for a
vehicle contribution deduction. The Foundation is registered as a Preferred Charity.

HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS:

      Step 1: A donor contacts Cars 4 Causes by phoning 800-766-CARE (800-766-2273) or by
      accessing their website. The donor has the opportunity to designate a charity they would
      like to benefit from the proceeds of their donation.
      Step 2: C4C picks up the vehicle at no cost to the donor – then get it ready for sale by
      completing minor repairs, and securing all DMV paperwork. We also have the
      vehicle smog-checked to be certain it meets state requirements.
      Step 3: C4C advertises and sells vehicles to get the highest possible price. When the
      vehicle is sold C4C sends a check to the designated nonprofit organization.
      Step 4: After the vehicle is sold C4C provides donors with a written acknowledgment
      Required for a vehicle contribution deduction for the selling price of the vehicle.
      Plus C4C sends an individualized personal thank you letter.

The Foundations will receive 70% of the proceeds. CARS 4 CAUSES also has provided informa-
tion on the Foundation website www.cajdfoundation.org. Their website information is on the Foun-
dation website under the fund raising button but the address is below. It goes right to the donation
page for the Foundation. Check it out.
