Celebrating 57 Years





Mission Statement


The Community Service Association of San Diego Unified School District is a nonprofit association organized to solicit contributions from district employees for recognized charitable agencies in San Diego County which support the arts, education, health, and human services.

History of CSA

The Community Service Association was organized as the result of meetings among employee organizations that felt the need for a contribution club similar to others in the city. A temporary Board of Directors met for the first time on February 6, 1956, and the San Diego Unified School District Community Service Association (CSA) was incorporated under the laws of the State of California as a nonprofit corporation.
Since the Association's inception in 1956 Adobe PDF, CSA members have donated over $11.8M to support local charities.
The Association derives its funds from contributions through the payroll deduction plan. Cash donations are also accepted.

How to Get Involved

District employees can get involved in CSA either by enrolling in the voluntary payroll deduction plan or by making a one-time contribution with a personal check. Payroll deduction forms are available here.
