Progress Report for La Expedición de Anza 1775 (LEA)

LEA has become a reality this year. This cultural education facility on the Anza Trail in Tucson, Arizona, opened to the public in March, 2020. The National Park Service will soon be fabricating a tactile map and a colorful wayside panel, allowing people with perceptual disabilities to understand the events and geography of the Anza Expedition. A series of interactive artworks are planned for the coming year.

An outdoor classroom, designed for use by classes from the neighboring Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind (ASDB), and other schools, is the only unfunded element of the LEA Master Plan. We need your help now.

As we enter the holiday giving season, please consider a donation. We are almost there! We have raised almost $32,000 for the outdoor classroom, and we need another $9000 to build.

All donations in any amount made this month will be doubled!

Thanks to the Federal Cares Act, taxpayers who file using the standard deduction are now eligible to deduct up to $300 for cash donations made to charitable organizations. This one-time allowance expires December 31, 2020.

You may donate now by going to our LEA web site:

Donations are managed by the Anza Society International (ASI), a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, Tax ID #06-1723695, incorporated under laws of the State of Arizona. ASI is an all-volunteer organization. 100 percent of all donations go directly to the completion of the LEA outdoor classroom.
