While historically home to the Kumeyaay people, San Diego California was the first site visited by Europeans on what is now the West Coast of the United States. Upon landing in San Diego Bay in 1542, Juan Cabrillo claimed the entire area for Spain, forming the basis for the settlement of Alta California 200 years later. The Presidio and Mission of San Diego, founded in 1769, formed the first European settlement in what is now California. In 1821,San Diego California became part of newly independent Mexico.  In 1850, San Diego became part of the United States following the Mexican-American War.

San Diego worked hard to become the economic center of the region and that includes the San Diego & Tijuana metropolitan area.  San Diego’s main economic engines are military and defense-related activities, tourism, international trade, and manufacturing. The presence of the University of California in San Diego with the affiliated UCSD Medical Center, has helped make the area a center of research in biotechnology.

San Diego California has many nonprofit organizations that raise money and perform deeds for people in need.  For instance, an organization that uses its revenues to feed the homeless or educate children is a non-profit. The organization receives revenue by soliciting donations from the community or selling items to raise money for the cause.

A nonprofit does not operate in an effort to build wealth or revenue for the benefit of the owner, directors or shareholders. The main goal of a non-profit is to generate funds and volunteer assistance to help further its chosen cause. A non-profit organization can also act as a publicity vehicle to bring more attention to an issue in the community.

One of the main benefits of running nonprofit organization is that these organizations have an opportunity to assist the community via funds and volunteer work. Because the organization is tax-exempt, it does not have to pay taxes on the money it raises.
