Dear San Dieguito Academy families and friends,
Our mission at the San Dieguito Academy Foundation has always been focused on making a difference
in the lives of our students. Since our beginning in 1997, we have raised over $3M for our school, en-
riching the educational experience for hundreds of children. This past year saw the expansion of our
mission to include alumni and community members.
Thanks to the efforts of our Foundation Board, we began an intensive outreach to San Dieguito High
School alumni with a new alumni website, www.sdalumni.com ,twice yearly mailings and regular con-
tact with reunion coordinators from the various classes. With over 70 years and an estimated 18,000
alumni, we have a rich history to document and a strong connection to make with past graduates who
have fond memories of San Dieguito. If you know a San Dieguito alumnus, please be sure to tell them
about the great things that are happening at their school these days. Remember we can all be SDA am-
bassadors in our community!
We also increased our business outreach to new corporate donors including Qualcomm, ViaSat, Asym-
tek, RockStar and Bottlerocket Entertainment. These generous donors provided critical support for
our growing Robotics program. Donations to our Matching Gifts program also increased through the
efforts of parents who made additional funds available through their employers. Private foundations
like the San Diego Foundation provided another source of revenue through donor advised funds.
Our total revenue was up just over 2% compared to the previous school year thanks to an increase in
community contributions, Annual Appeal donations from parents and gifts to our Performing Arts
