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 start up of a coffee cart business including funding for building modifications and on-going space rental costs.

This special gifts fund has evolved, and through a competitive process, the FDD awards funding for non-profit programs to assist people with developmental disabilities and their families in San Diego and Imperial counties.
