Invest in Seniors
Help make San Diego a better place to grow old
Our Vision and Mission
We envision a world where older adults enjoy a healthy, dynamic way of life. Where they are socially connected, physically active, and meaningfully engaged in their communities. Where all San Diegans can age with dignity and have access to the resources they need to thrive.
Our mission is to increase awareness and action toward issues impacting seniors and to increase philanthropy to senior-focused organizations. Together, we can create a future where seniors are no longer vulnerable but vibrant.
A Looming Crisis
We Need Your Help
The San Diego Senior Community Foundation is working to improve the quality of life for seniors in our region through the power of philanthropy. Currently, less than 3% of charitable giving nationwide is directed toward programs for senior citizens. By giving to SDSCF, you can be sure that your money is going to fund initiatives, programs, and infrastructure that will directly support seniors in San Diego. Together we can ensure that all seniors have someone they can turn to and trust.
