The Miss San Diego Pageant and Scholarship Association (MSDPSA) is a not-for-profit organization that receives no public or government funding. We rely on contributions from generous members of our community to help us continue to provide scholarships and opportunities to outstanding young women. Donations in-kind are a tremendous help to us, as well, and are used as opportunity prizes at various community events.MSDPSA is also a Miss America local Organization. The Miss America Organization is one of the nation’s leading achievement programs and the world’s largest provider of scholarship assistance for young women.No member of the MSDPSA is compensated in any way for their time and efforts – we all volunteer our time and money. All funds raised from raffles, ticket sales, advertisement page sales, and other fundraising efforts are used strictly towards the pageant. Funds go toward scholarships to the titleholders, costs toward preparing our titleholders for the State competition, and helps us with the cost of producing the pageant itself.
