What we do
The California Preservation Foundation provides statewide leadership, advocacy and education to ensure the protection of California’s diverse cultural heritage and historic places.
From the loss of our historic post offices, to documenting the storied sites of Route 66, to state rehabilitation tax credits, to mapping LGBTQ heritage, we are the leading statewide advocacy organization fighting to protect our diverse heritage at the state legislature and Washington.
More than 1000 preservation professionals and local advocates each year rely on CPF for education leadership, a 40-year tradition. Our annual conference is the West Coast’s largest and most respected, drawing upwards of 500 people to discuss innovative preservation strategies and approaches.
We recognize and share stories of the state’s irreplaceable places. Hundreds of breakthrough projects have received a prestigious Preservation Design Award from CPF. We celebrate California’s unique built heritage through tours, site-specific gatherings, and networking events.
