  • The San Diego Foundation is pleased to announce an innovative way to recognize and support the positive work of local nonprofits. 

    On Tuesday, May 6, they will once again host giveBIG, an online day-of-giving event for the San Diego community.

    How It Works: Go online to on May 6 and make a donation to Bayside Community Center. 12:00 am - 11:59 pm.The coolest part is The San Diego Foundation and other sponsors have committed $150,000 to incentivize giving during this event, so that Bayside will receive a proportion of this pool based on how much money we raise during the event. (For example, if Bayside raises 5% of the total amount raised during the event, we will receive 5% of the incentive pool.)This is an unbelievable opportunity for the people of San Diego to come together to raise as much money as possible for Bayside in a time-sensitive period.Visit for more info. 


Give Local America


The San Diego Foundation’s giveBIG 2014 event will be taking place in conjunction with the larger national day-of-giving event that is also taking place on May 6, Give Local America.






Where people connect and create "a place"



Alive with the voices of young and old, from all corners of the world, Bayside is a place that uniquely represents all of Linda Vista. Long-time residents and those newly arrived speak in many languages: English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Laotian, Hmong, Mixteco, Chinese, Polish, Russian, Portuguese, Italian and more, reminding us that Linda Vista continues to be a place of "America becoming." Bayside re-weaves the fabric of relationships in our community, countering the decline of social connectedness by providing a place where people interact in many different ways. As a result, the center is truly a second home for many people. With hundreds of daily visitors, it's a place full of happy activity and fellowship.

And make the place their own

Working in partnership with our visitors ensures the center continually evolves to meet the changing needs and interest of the community. Bayside encourages and empowers the people who use Bayside to take on leadership roles at the center and beyond, becoming teachers, volunteers, and advocates. By creating opportunities for grassroots community groups, the center facilitates engagement in the civic arena, providing a forum where residents come together to address neighborhood issues and concerns.
