The Samahan Filipino American Performing Arts and Education Center, Inc. was organized in 1974 by the late Dr. Lolita Dinoso Carter with the purpose of helping the Filipino American youth acquire pride in their cultural heritage, by providing them opportunity to participate and experience Philippine dance and music as a social and recreational activity, as well as a first-rate professional performance venue. 

Becoming a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization shortly after its founding, Samahan has endeavored for four decades to fulfill this primary purpose of advancing the Filipinos’ beautiful culture, reaching out to a large number of youth and to the San Diego community. It has continued to sustain a milieu or atmosphere for the San Diego community to appreciate Philippine cultural arts through dance, music and living traditions, all to enrich cultural diversity.
