Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation Donates $50,000 to MESA Foundation

PR Newswire

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 23, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, February 13, Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation presented representatives of the MESA Foundation with a donation in the amount of $50,000. The mission of MESA Foundation is to raise awareness for charitable causes in San Diego by partnering local charities with Aztec student-athletes who chose to use their social media platforms and influence to bring awareness to organizations.

"It's inspiring to witness the student-athletes of SDSU making such a positive impact throughout the community," said Cody J. Martinez, Chairman, Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation. "The rising stars of Aztec Basketball have an incredible champion in the MESA Foundation. On and off the court, Sycuan is proud to support the unique mission of promoting academic and athletic achievement through personal service and sincere outreach. The meaningful opportunities cultivated for the student athletes by the MESA Foundation benefit our region tremendously and provide an exemplary program of leadership and teamwork." 

Sycuan is one of the first corporate partners of the MESA Foundation and further amplifies support for San Diego State University. In 2005, Sycuan and SDSU partnered in a first of its kind program – The Sycuan Institute on Tribal Gaming. Additionally, Sycuan became a founding partner for Aztec Stadium. 

"Entering our second season, our priorities were to continue to strengthen our connection in the San Diego Community beyond our partnerships with the many charities and non-profit organization we were able to align ourselves with in year one" said Jeff Smith, President, MESA Foundation "Sycuan's willingness to step up and be the first of our corporate sponsors and attach their well-respected name to our efforts has not only allowed MESA to continue our campaign to support the community, but has helped us grow other local business partnerships based on the credibility of the Sycuan endorsement. We can't thank Sycuan enough and are excited about the direction and future of MESA thanks in no small part to their decision to support."
