By the turn of the Century the Valley Concert Association was not able to continue their philanthropy because of a lack of funding.
In 2008 a generous donation from the estate of Frank Plash gave the needed funds to revive the Concert Association.
Sponsoring concerts, music programs, and other non-profits the SBVCA remains active in their community.
In 2013, the Association's board approved the lease with the San Bernardino Municipal Water Department for the abandoned adobe building on 11th Street.
The building was dedicated in honor of Ernest and Dorothy Garcia for their many contributions to the visual and performing arts.
On November 16th, 2015 it was named the Garcia Center for the Arts. A home for creatives and art organizations the Garcia Center is a sturdy foundation for San Bernardino's art renaissance.
