365 Connect is a 501c3 whose mission is to connect corporations and donors with nonprofit organizations and create a shared sense of purpose. Through relationship building, innovative leadership and strategic grantmaking, we work together to strengthen and build a strong philanthropic community.
As San Diego continues to grow, there is an increased awareness of our community’s critical needs. Recurring themes that plague large cities across the nation continue to emerge—homelessness, environmental preservation, struggling schools, failing infrastructure, underserved communities, and support services for the growing active duty military as well as the veteran population .
All of these are a part of San Diego’s growing challenges. With that in mind, we all have a responsibility to give something back. At 365 Connect, we are committed to creating a culture of community support to meet these challenges head on and make San Diego an even better place to live for all!
Teresa is a New York native. Having grown up in a family of five kids, she and her siblings were taught at an early age that giving back was not an option, but an obligation. She moved to California in 1991 and has been working in the corporate event business and nonprofit industry for over 25 years. She builds strong, long-term relationships with everyone she works with—from corporate clients to the nonprofits they serve. Her experiences, expertise, and knowledge have shaped her passion for giving back.
Teresa lives in Carmel Valley with her husband, Dave and her daughter, Elizabeth, a senior at Torrey Pines High School. Her sons, Nick and Matt, graduated from San Diego State University and both live and work in San Diego. Her strong sense of family and friends reinforces her love of people and service.
Carlen Haag is a true San Diego native. Her love for San Diego and the community in which she lives, has led her to a life dedicated to making every day a little better than before. Growing up, Carlen regularly volunteered with local philanthropic organizations, and enjoyed spending her time helping others. She has finally decided to combine her passion and her skills to do something that really will make a difference.
For the past decade, Carlen has worked with local nonprofits sharing her expertise in leadership and program development, grant writing, and fundraising. It was here, Carlen realized how a positive influence and a dream can push a person to accomplish things they never thought possible. She has witnessed firsthand how volunteering can change a person’s outlook on life. It is her goal to be able to provide that opportunity for all of San Diego community.
In her spare time, Carlen lives in Point Loma with her children. Her son, Shane is an avid racer, racing the family owned GAS Chassis in the Amsoil USAC CRA Sprint Car Series traveling across the nation with drivers, Mark Henry Jr. and AJ Bender.
