We envision a world where the senior population of San Diego County is nurtured into a healthy, dynamic way of life; where they are socially connected, physically active and a vital element of our community.
Our mission is to transition San Diego seniors from vulnerable to vibrant, through the power of philanthropy—and that no local senior is left without access to the resources to thrive.
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 2% 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.
