The “Lamm” in our nonprofit’s name is from Manuel J. Lamm who passed away in 1998 from a hiking accident. He is the son of Founder/CEO Mary Gimenez-Caulder and the late David Lamm. In part, our nonprofit was created to honor Manuel and his love of the Arts. Deemed “gifted” by the State of California, he was also a talented artist and poet and would often recite his poetry with other students at local coffee shops. Thanks to an art scholarship, Manuel was able to pursue his talents in art and literature.
Caulder Lamm Alliance for Children will continue Manuel’s legacy by providing scholarships in the Arts to talented high school students.
The Caulder Lamm Alliance for Children has several programs that assist children and youth in need:
Our Beyond Bounds program provides funds to children in grades K–12 who are interested in or who already participate in an extra-curricular activity and whose families have financial difficulty paying the fees or costs associated with the activity.
The Caulder Lamm Alliance for Children provides educational scholarships to high school seniors that are pursuing higher learning in the arts. The scholarship award is known as the Manuel Jackson Lamm Scholarship Award.
Our Mission Fund assists children and teens in need both locally and globally. Assistance has included books, clothing, groceries, and other emergency needs. Toy drives are conducted during the Holiday season.
