Darin Pastor leads Los Angeles-area holding company Capstone Financial Group, Inc., as its principal and CEO. He additionally works to make his Southern California community a better place through making contributions to worthy nonprofit organizations focused on education and social welfare. Among the groups Darin Pastor’s support has benefited over the years is Cops 4 Causes, dedicated to raising funds to support peace officers and their families in times of trouble, and to offer assistance to military families in need as well.
Cops 4 Causes provides police officers and their families with the opportunity to help not only their own, but also the greater community. The first nonprofit group to focus on the philanthropic contributions of local police forces, its multiple efforts include the Golden Ticket program, which brings joy and hope into the lives of foster children throughout the Los Angeles County area.
Cops 4 Causes maintains a partnership with Los Angeles County’s Department of Children and Family Services, as well as with agencies working with foster parents. Through this partnership, active first responder personnel provide protective chaperone services for children and teens in foster homes and certain group home settings.
The Golden Ticket enhances these relationships by offering the chance for foster youth and their families to join their hero first responders in attendance at sporting events, theater performances, and other educational and arts workshops in the area. Thanks to collaborations with the theater owners themselves and other sponsors, the program continues to enrich children’s lives.
