The Little Saigon Foundation of San Diego (LSF) is a 501(c)(3) organization in City Heights whose mission is to develop the local community through means of revitalizing its infrastructure, promoting culture and tourism in the area, and engaging youth, residents, and businesses in civic responsibilities.

Our recent accomplishment in revitalizing the Little Saigon District was the unanimously pass of a resolution by the City Council of San Diego, officially designated the stretch of El Cajon Boulevard between Highland and Euclid Ave as LITTLE SAIGON DISTRICT.

LSF has many exciting plans for the future! Some of these include the creation of a Little Saigon Night Market and installation of branded trash bins and banners, as well as an open-air museum that tells the story of the Vietnamese people. When you attend an LSF event, your donation directly benefits the residents of San Diego and helps create a vibrant center of culture, commerce and community engagement in the Little Saigon District.

We are still far from reaching our goals. Your donation, help and support by attending our events, will help makes a real different in the revitalization efforts to renew the new district.
