You helped us raise over $700,000!

On behalf of the Living Coast Board of Directors and staff, our heartfelt thanks go to all those who made a gift, purchased a membership, and spread the word during our LOVE FOR LIVING COAST campaign. We had a goal of raising $500,000 by August 31 and thanks to all of you, over $700,000 was raised to support critical operations during our closure.

Special thanks to J.W. Sefton Foundation and City of Chula Vista for their generous support which propelled us over our goal, and to the Nelson Foundation and the JEM Project for their generous $250,000 match which kicked off the campaign

With the number of COVID-19 cases on the rise, we don’t anticipate being able to reopen and resume income-generating operations until spring 2021.
