I'd Like to Receive...

Every one of our more than 20,000 members and supporters has their own reason for investing in the California Preservation Foundation. Some people joined at a workshop and stuck around for access to tours and exclusive locations around the state. Others were introduced to CPF at our annual conference, and have enjoyed the new locations we visit every year. Still others joined CPF simply because they understand the importance of preserving the places that make California special, from rural missions to urban skyscrapers, and they want to be part of a dedicated team of advocates.
