With Gratitude

In 2023, the DMCA Board asked the community for their support, with funds used to support the mission, including production and free distribution of the Sandpiper. In response, 113 Del Mar citizens stepped forward with $39,600 in gifts. We are so grateful to all these donors. Thank you!

Over the years, hundreds of Del Mar citizens have donated generously to the Del Mar Community Alliance (DMCA). More than $210,000 has been contributed, making it possible to bring the Sandpiper to every Del Mar family via their mailboxes and email. We are thus able to fulfill our mission to inform and enlighten our community about the many Del Mar issues that matter. The list below represents cumulative giving to DMCA between 2018 and 2023. Thank you!
