Donor Spotlight

Ellen Browning Scripps Foundation


Thanks to the Ellen Browning Scripps Foundation, ILACSD was able to enhance our education programs and create a more interactive classroom experience. They helped provide much needed technological upgrades to work with students, such as iPads and iClick technology. They also help fund our zero waste workshops, allowing more San Diegans to learn about zero waste and obtain resources to pursue a zero waste lifestyle.
