Together We Can Reach Our Goals

Your investment is instrumental in writing the next exciting chapter of our story. As such, we are committed to ensuring that each investment we receive ripples throughout the Linda Vista community to the 28,000 people impacted by our work and beyond. The return on your investment is priceless in that the lives that you are helping to transform in one of San Diego's most distressed neighborhoods cannot be fully quantified. Through our services, education, and advocacy, Bayside is shifting the economic needle while preserving the cultural identity of one of San Diego’s most diverse communities. This year some of our notable achievements include:

  • Collaborating with the University of San Diego and San Diego Unified school (SDUSD) to establish an urban garden on SDUSD property in Linda Vista, a federally identified food desert;

  • Partnering with Thrive Public Schools to build a new joint-usage community center and charter school at our previous location, set to open August of 2018;

  • Expanding services to a commercially zoned property that will launch and host various local social entrepreneurs as well as micro-enterprises; and

  • Establishing the One Linda Vista social movement and conference which unites the fragmented Linda Vista neighborhood to address community-identified priorities while celebrating our diverse leadership.

As we look forward to expanding our current facility located at 6882 Linda Vista Road, it is important to Bayside that you feel our gratitude for empowering our organization to accomplish these celebrated achievements and more. It would be my pleasure to personally share with you all of the ways your investment can help shape Bayside's future. Our doors are always open to you and your family to stop by and learn more about our programs, staff, and priorities. We look forward to getting to know you better while celebrating many more accomplishments together.

With sincere gratitude,

Corey Pahanish, Ph.D.
