We are dads, we are volunteers, we are PTA members, we are, we are dedicated, we abide, WE ARE THE DUDES!
What Do We Do?
From good deeds to fundraising, we have been serving the community for over 8 years. Our primary focus is the ongoing support for the South Pasadena schools, and fostering our alliances with our city, fire and police departments. We are proud to have donated 10s of thousands of dollars to the South Pas schools and community over the years.

Become a DUDE!
Make a difference. Make some friends.
The DUDES non-profit's conception was based on a few guys that just wanted to make a difference in our community, for our kids. That's it! It's not a huge commitment. We only ask for one volunteer commitment a year. We will keep you informed on what SP needs through our mailer. The best part about joining, is getting to know other like minded DUDES that have a really great time in between our service! Become a DUDE. Make a difference!
