Sponsorship Opportunities

How should our city and region grow in the next 100 years?
Where can we preserve more open space and build new parks?
How should our downtown and neighborhoods develop?
Will we have a world class transportation system?
Can our shoreline remain an amenity?
How will we house our people?
Will “paradise” include Mexico, our neighbors to the south?

Our exceptional quality of life in San Diego does not come by accident. Since 1961, Citizens Coordinate for Century 3 (C-3) has fought and successfully advocated for the highest standards in urban design, community planning and access to public open space – and helped answer these questions. We balance our efforts and interests between positive economic growth and the need to preserve our physical environment and quality of life.

C-3 accomplishes this by helping to bring consensus around civic issues; by being a facilitator for civic dialogue and a source for reasoned opinions. We promote good planning and good government. As a member-supported nonprofit organization, we play the crucial role of uniting citizens to jointly craft solutions to the challenges we face in our city and region.

Why You Should Support C-3

Our sponsorship program helps C-3 strengthen our voice and operations, enhance communication with members and increase advocacy efforts on specific issues. We are a grassroots, member-managed organization; we need the support of the community to continue our efforts and events. By supporting C-3, you will increase your visibility and access to a high-level, engaged group, interested and invested in our region’s quality of life.
