The Downtown San Diego Partnership is a privately funded non-profit 501(c) 6 business organization. The Partnership was formed in 1993 by the merger of two Downtown business organizations: San Diego Downtown Association / Central City Association (formed in 1952), and San Diegans, Inc. (formed in 1958). Our membership consists of companies and individuals committed to strengthening the business, residential and cultural environment of Downtown San Diego.
