Give Today

Thank you for supporting our historic places and the stories they tell. Every gift makes an impact on preservation.

What Does Your Donation Accomplish?


The Santa Monica Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) public charity dedicated to promoting widespread understanding and appreciation of the cultural, social, economic and environmental benefits of historic preservation.  Your tax-deductible donation sustains:

  • Educational programs and community workshops at our award-winning Preservation Resource Center in the Shotgun House.
  • Weekly architectural tours and special events to promote understanding and appreciation of Santa Monica's landmarks and history.
  • Completion of our innovative school curriculum, “Building a Neighborhood,” which will use the Preservation Resource Center and the Third Street Historic District as learning laboratories for school children.

The Santa Monica Conservancy was founded in 2002 after a successful grassroots effort by residents who defeated a ballot measure that would have significantly impaired the City’s landmarks ordinance. Recognizing the ongoing need for a community-based, non-governmental source of information and education about historic places and preservation, the organization was founded.
