Social Impact Areas

We advance a vibrant quality of life in San Diego by supporting programs in diverse social impact areas, including:

Arts & Culture

A vibrant arts scene supports economic development and enhances quality of life by providing opportunities to socialize, learn and celebrate the diversity and creativity of our community.

Civil Society

A society of citizens linked by common interests and collective activity promotes equity through democracy, cooperation, stewardship, diversity and justice.

Community Involvement

Community improvement and neighborhood development brings residents and local leaders together to take collective action, generate solutions to local issues, and build strong, resilient communities.

Disaster Relief/Public Safety

The San Diego Regional Disaster Fund is an informational and funding resource for disaster impact, recovery and preparedness.


Education lifts families out of poverty providing opportunities for sustainable, viable income and overall community health.


Ensuring future generations have clean air and water, building awareness about climate change, and protecting and connecting nature so it is accessible helps grow a vibrant region.

Food & Nutrition

With a poverty rate of about 15% and about 1.6M San Diegans considered overweight, those facing hunger need more food to eat, healthier, fresh food distribution and nutrition education.

Health & Human Services

Providing for effective health and human services fosters advances in medicine, public health, and social services, and protects the health and well-being of all San Diegans.


Quality, affordable housing promotes positive outcomes in education, employment, and physical and mental health, and is essential for families and communities to thrive.

Science & Technology

Investments in research and development, innovation, and education are imperative for job creation, a strong economy, and improved quality of life for current and future generations.
