OUR COMMUNITY | WHY GIVE? | DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT

Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to make a powerful impact with a targeted donation to an organization that you support every November. It’s a day of the year when we can come together and make a direct impact in our community. Let’s give back together!

OUR COMMUNITY

“Our servicemembers and veterans are the backbone of our community. They have sacrificed so much for our freedom, and it’s our duty to honor and support them in any way we can.”
– Ray Flores, La Jolla Playhouse Trustee and Executive Director of the San Diego Veterans Coalition

San Diego is home to the largest concentration of military in the world with over 60% of the Navy’s Pacific Fleet and over 40% of the Marine Corps combat capability stationed in the San Diego area. When you add in 243,000 veterans in the county and the military families, San Diego is considered a “super cluster” of military activity.

As San Diego continues to strengthen its military presence, it needs to integrate the members of the military and their families into various cultural, sports, educational, and civic activities (San Diego Military Economic Impact Study, 2017).

WHY GIVE?

La Jolla Playhouse partners with military and veteran-serving organizations including the local VA to identify and reach those in the community who can most benefit from the Playhouse’s arts programs. In addition to the healing that comes from watching and participating in the arts, the Playhouse’s MVP Initiative creates magical moments of reconnection for military members and their families.

The benefits of arts programming and creative arts therapies in military healthcare and community settings, include enhanced patient coping, reduced length of hospital stays, decreased need for pain medication, and reduced patient levels of depression and situational anxiety (State of the Field Report: Arts in Healthcare, 2009).

Your donation to La Jolla Playhouse’s Military & Veterans Programs – the MVP Initiative, improves the quality of life for San Diego’s active-duty servicemembers, veterans, and their families. Learn more here!
