Each October, the Torrey Pines Kiwanis Foundation and its members meet to distribute the proceeds from the annual La Jolla Festival of the Arts (LJFA) to programs for San Diegans with disabilities. Non-profit organizations that focus on sports, recreation and education programs to help San Diegans with disabilities regain their self esteem, independence, confidence and ultimately live a meaningful life amongst able body people, are welcomed to submit a grant application. As part of the award, your program will be included on our website and required to participate in the annual LJFA held the third weekend in June at UCSD. You will receive our logo and promotional material to help promote the festival to your staff, volunteers, members, families and friends.

The following programs will receive funding in 2014 from the

Torrey Pines Kiwanis Foundation, Inc.
