Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes! All donations will be processed by the San Diego Foundation (SDF), a 501(c)(3) organization.
How do I know the money goes to the Dog Park?
All revenue goes 100% to support the Nate's Point Off-Leash Area. The funds are held and managed by the Balboa Park Trust at the San Diego Foundation, and are reserved specifically for this purpose.
Can I gift on behalf or in memory of someone special?
Yes! Please include a note with your donation (online or by mail). Larger donations are eligible for a permanent plaque at the Dog Park.
My company will match donations, too... will that help?
Of course! Please get your company involved! If they are unsure how to proceed, have them contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I donate online using my credit card?
Yes! Click the Donate link to send your money via PayPal (you don't need to have a PayPal account). Note that we will be charged a small fee per transaction. You can also donate online using other methods of payment if you register with PayPal, available when you click the Make a Donation button.
I don't want to donate online. Can I send you a check?
Yes! Make all checks out to "SDF - Nate's Point Dog Park" and mail to:

Can I just send you cash?
Sure, but we'd prefer a check. The San Diego Foundation can process many types of donations, but cash is the most difficult to track for tax purposes.
What happens if we raise too much money?
All money raised over and above the cost of the project will be turned into an endowment specifically for future upgrades and maintenance of Nate's Point Dog Park. The endowment will be part of the Balboa Park Endowment Funds, administered by the San Diego Foundation. We certainly hope to be able to create a large enough endowment to ensure the continuing quality of our Dog Park!
What's an endowment?
Funds that are endowed are designed to provide income forever. The principal is never spent, while the earnings every year will be available for spending on any Nate's Point project. Fundraising for the next project will be that much easier!
