Our vision is to transform our center into a bustling gathering space in the heart of the community over the coming years using a multi-phased approach.
In addition to activating underused space and beautifying the neighborhood, these upgrades will provide Bayside with sustainable revenue streams to support mission-driven programs and operations. Our aim is for the future development of 6882 Linda Vista Road to both reflect and empower our diverse community. To this end, the One Linda Vista Gathering Space, hosted at Bayside Community Center, will be home to culturally relevant micro-enterprises.
In 2019, we will continue to lay the financial and operational groundwork to facilitate these amazing upgrades. We are in the process of assembling an amazing team of supporters and already see early signs of progress.
Our confidence in this vision is based on the quality of our awesome team of volunteers, staff, and donors. Thanks to their hard work and support, our fundraising events, grants, and contracts have steadily increased.
Only five months into the 2018-2019 fiscal year, Bayside has already exceeded last year’s total donations. Similarly, Bayside’s Board of Directors demonstrated their commitment by sustaining 100% monthly financial contributions throughout the last year. Additionally, we are excited to be working with the San Diego Foundation in cultivating philanthropic interest.
Lastly, we would like to give special thanks to Vinh and Jessica Tran, owners of 6882 Linda Vista Road; may the vision and future of Bayside always reflect the generosity you show.
