Special gifts fund

The Foundation Special Gifts Fund provides support for Programs including micro enterprises managed and/or staffed by persons with developmental disabilities. In 2008, the Foundation supported the startup of a coffee cart business including funding for building modifications and on-going space rental costs.

This special gifts fund has evolved, and we have established the following Capital Funding priorities for 2022: Through a competitive RFP process, the FDD will fund up to $50,000, to eligible nonprofits, for critically needed capital equipment that will have a significant and beneficial impact on people with developmental disabilities and their families in San Diego and Imperial counties.

Capital RFP period is now closed for Fiscal Year 2022.
