SAN MARCOSTERI Campus of Life, a nonprofit organization that aims to empower individuals with special needs and change the way the world views them, received a $100,000 grant for its new performing arts center.

The grant comes from the David C. Copley Foundation, a philanthropic organization that funds nonprofits making a difference in the areas of human services, military and military veterans, youth development, medical and medical research, education, arts and culture and animal welfare in the San Diego area.

With 43 years of serving the special needs community, TERI designs its programs to help each child, adult, senior and caretaker discover their own potential as a valued member of the community and how to maximize their quality of life.

The grant will be used to furnish the theater, studios and classrooms with state-of-the-art-technology in the campus’s new Walter J. & Betty C. Zable Foundation Performing Arts & Fine Arts Center. Construction crews broke ground on the new center last November and are expected to finish by December.

“These are exciting times for growth at TERI, and there is still much to accomplish,” said TERI Chief Development Officer Dan DeSaegher.

Plans for the 22,000-square foot center include a 200-seat theater, drama and music classrooms, multisensory rooms, art studios, outdoor performance and recreation space.
