The San Diego Foundation's board, staff and volunteers are dedicated, experienced professionals who are committed to San Diego's future and its people.

The San Diego Foundation is proud to stand as San Diego's premiere resource for information about charitable giving and community needs. We encourage, support and facilitate meaningful dialogue on issues affecting each of our communities, and work with philanthropists to develop creative solutions to meet critical community needs.

Since our inception in 1975, The San Diego Foundation has helped public-spirited citizens find ways to address community problems. The funds we manage now number in the thousands. Through them, our donors support numerous organizations and serve a variety of extraordinary causes. Our donors and funds all share a common purpose: to make San Diego a better place to live, work and play.
