Community Impact

NTC Foundation's Impact

Showcase, advance, and strengthen our creative community by providing a home to hundreds of San Diego’s most innovative and creative arts, science, culture, and technology organizations. The collaborative nature of the setting, combined with extraordinary tenant benefits, will provide a place where ideas are born and resident companies create, innovate, demonstrate, exhibit, train, and teach.

Provide a festive outdoor, sun-filled gathering place and a new source of civic pride for generations of San Diego residents, families, students, tourists, business travelers, and scholars. ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station will be a place to explore, experience, engage, and enjoy.

Restore 26 historic, architecturally significant buildings on 80 park-like acres to their original Spanish Colonial Revival-style splendor, all in a central San Diego location on the bay with unparalleled views and a tranquil, naturally beautiful setting.

Honor, respect, and highlight Naval Training Center San Diego’s rich and life-transforming past while building for the future.

Sponsor programs and services that increase community access to the arts and assist our resident artists, arts organizations, and local businesses.
