Through a lens of racial and social justice, we collaborate with donors, community organizations, government, business, policy analysts and researchers to create new strategies and solutions for the region’s greatest equity gaps and most pressing challenges.

The result is a set of programs and funds that can help you better understand community needs and advance change in such areas as equity, education, the environment and much more to communities throughout San Diego so that everyone who lives here can prosper, thrive and feel like they belong.
