The San Diego Foundation is a community foundation serving San Diego, and the International Community Foundation is a community foundation serving Baja California, Mexico and Latin America. Due to the proximity between San Diego and Baja California, and the complementary missions of the two organizations, the organizations believed a merger could allow them to collectively increase services, enhance effectiveness, and strengthen long-term sustainability. The Lodestar Foundation provided a grant to help fund the cost of a consultant to assist in the exploration.
