The NTC Foundation was established in 2000 by the City of San Diego as a 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation to enrich the lives of San Diegans by renovating 26 historic buildings at the former Naval Training Center to create, facilitate and operate a broad-based complex focused on experiencing the arts, culture, and creativity that are the hallmark of the San Diego region.

You can support the NTC Foundation’s mission by making a tax deductible gift in the following ways.

Recognize Your Loved One with a Dedicated Rosebush

Rose Bush DedicationHonor your loved one with a gift that recognizes unshakable love, commitment, trust and perseverance.

The NTC Foundation offers you a special opportunity to dedicate a beautiful rose bush in the Sybil Stockdale Rose Garden at NTC in the heart of the NTC Arts & Culture District at Liberty Station…a new destination that itself has bloomed into a San Diego landmark.

A commemorative plaque with your personal message will be implanted adjacent to your designated rosebush. This is a limited opportunity with only 110 tribute rose bushes available. Your $500 donation to the NTC Foundation will be used to help preserve the historic buildings at the former Naval Training Center and their new mission as the NTC Arts & Culture District.
