Carmel Mission Foundation


The Carmel Mission Foundation was established to restore and preserve the historic buildings, grounds, and artifacts throughout the Carmel Mission, founded in 1771. The Foundation is a 501(c)3 Corporation independent from any religious organizations. The Carmel Mission is a U.S. National Historic Landmark, a California State Landmark, and is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places.

The Big Idea

The Carmel Mission was founded in 1771 and the Carmel Mission Foundation serves to preserve and protect that historic landmark. The nonprofit is dedicated to restoring the mission as well as educating those who visit about the cultural history of California and Monterey County. They need assistance now with their operations and program development to allow visitors and students a full educational experience. This way everyone can experience Carmel Mission as a real and meaningful piece of California history.

"We are incredibly fortunate to have a 250-year-old National Historic Landmark here in Monterey County that helps educate our youth on the importance of Carmel and Monterey to California's history, and how Carmel Mission is significant to the development of our State. We owe it to our children, and our children's children to do our part in preserving this local landmark."
