As the NTC Foundation begins our 11th year of service to the community, we need your help to continue to advance the community’s vision for a vibrant arts and cultural district. Please consider supporting the NTC Foundation with a tax-deductible gift of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more to help us continue this adventure.
The NTC Commemorative Brick Campaign is BACK!
In celebration of Phase II, and in response to high demand, the NTC Foundation has reopened the Commemorative Brick Campaign. You can honor a loved one or show the support of your family or business for NTC's exciting new mission with a lasting imprint by purchasing a Commemorative Brick to be engraved and displayed in the Fieldstone Foundation Legacy Plaza at NTC Promenade, in the heart of Liberty Station’s Arts and Culture District.
We are pleased to offer the same pricing we offered in 2004 at $150 per brick. Replicas are also available for $45. One-hundred percent (100%) of the program’s net profits will support the transformation of the historic Naval Training Center into a vibrant arts and cultural district for the region. We invite you to purchase your Commemorative Brick to honor the military service of a family member, staff, friend…or perhaps yourself…or simply to show the support of your family or business for NTC’s exciting new mission.

Recognize Your Loved One with a Dedicated Rosebush
Honor 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 Promenade in the heart of the new cultural district at Liberty Station…a new destination that itself is blooming 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 a cultural center.
We are pleased to announce that the NTC Foundation has met our $40,000 campaign goal to support the Luce Auditorium Operating Model Study. Thanks to a "campaign completion" gift from Joan and Irwin Jacobs, the NTC Foundation can now move forward with this important next step. The study will establish with more certainty Luce Auditorium’s operational and financial feasibility as a new Performing Arts & Cinema Center. Thank you to all who contributed to our campaign – every gift we received has been an important contribution to this effort. We look forward to sharing with you news about our plans and progress.
Moving forward, contributions for Luce Auditorium will be reserved and designated for the renovation and operation of this community treasure.
Need: $3 million; Secured: $1.28 million
The Point Loma Legacy Campaign is a community effort, led by long-time Point Loma residents Roberta and Malin Burnham, to commemorate Point Loma’s history and leadership through sponsorship of the restoration of the NTC Command Center. A special feature of the NTC Command Center will be a historic display honoring the Point Loma families and many Peninsula attributes that contributed to the growth of San Diego. Leadership support for this project has been generously given by the Burnham Family, the Hervey Family Fund, the Peter Peckham Family, and Conrad Prebys. Join us today as we honor our past and celebrate the future through the creation of this new legacy for generations of children and families to enjoy.
Need: $1 million; Secured: $200,000
This heroic American couple will be commemorated with the creation of an exhibit about their lives, two meeting rooms named in their honor and dedication of the Sybil Stockdale Rose Garden in Honor of Navy Families. Led by Rear Admiral Francis Holian, this initiative has secured over $200,000 of the $1 million goal from Northrop Grumman Corporation, North County Island Credit Union and San Diego County Supervisor Greg Cox. Join us in this special tribute to a heroic American couple and the brave American men and women who continue to serve our country around the world.
The NTC Foundation received a $500,000 grant from San Diego National Bank (Community Reinvestment Act funds) to support this project, but these funds must stretch a very long way – and for at least three years. Sustaining the program will require aggressive fundraising from individuals, corporations, foundations, and government agencies. The cost per student is $1,500 per year. Our goal is for The Liberty School to be in session five days a week throughout the school year, and during school breaks and the summer to offer special camps.
