Our Purpose

We’ve partnered with The San Diego Foundation to create and sustain a local foundation to serve Oceanside.

Our purpose is to meet emerging needs by increasing effective philanthropy for all who live, work and play in Oceanside; build a community endowment to annually fund local organizations and causes; and give community members a vehicle for legacy planning that will benefit Oceanside, now and forever.
