Summer Scholarship Fundraiser 2014
Donate today!

Media Arts Center San Diego, the producer of the annual San Diego Latino Film Festival, is seeking help in raising $7,000 so San Diego youth can attend our summer programs for free.

The Media Arts Center offers youth programs to students in 1st-12th grade all over San Diego County. Through programs like the Teen Producers Project, Youth Media & Tech Camp, and Speak City Heights News Crew, youth learn about media literacy and digital technology, while also building skills to become future leaders and innovators. For many youth in San Diego, these types of tools and much-needed technology training is no longer offered in their schools due to on-going school budget cuts.

Please consider donating to this important cause today! Every donation amount is greatly appreciated. A donation of $245 will cover one student’s tuition to any of these programs.

Our goal is reach $7,000 to offer 30 scholarships for this summer! In addition to your donation, please also consider spreading the word to families, friends, and co-workers. Your donation is tax deductible. For your records, MACSD’s Federal Tax Id # is: 33-0871577

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. My contact info: 619.230.1938 x 101,

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration,
