For the LGBT Community, San Diego Human Dignity FoundationThe San Diego Human Dignity Foundation is firmly committed to identifying and serving the most urgent and relevant needs of our community. By establishing five key Focus Areas, we can more effectively allocate resources to improve the quality of life and help enact positive social change. These priority focus areas reflect results of community wide LGBT needs assessment.

Together with our funding partners, by mid-2008 the funds managed by SDHDF had  awarded over $960,000 to support worthy non-profit organizations in these focus areas.  In 2009 we will proudly top the million dollar mark.
