DONATE TO THE LOS ANGELES CONSERVANCY
Our membership is the foundation of the Conservancy's support, both as our financial base and as our strength in numbers on important preservation issues.
If you're already a member or would rather make a one-time donation, you have various options:
Preservation Advocacy Fund
Philanthropy in Action!
The Los Angeles Conservancy is a leader in historic preservation and has the largest membership base of any local preservation organization in the United States. Our members are our greatest asset, but membership support covers just 35% of our operating costs.
The Preservation Advocacy Fund (PAF) is a targeted action fund that directly supports the Conservancy’s core advocacy efforts. If you are a member, we hope you will consider supplementing your membership with a donation to the PAF.
If you are not a member but wish to support the Conservancy, donating to the PAF is the best way you can help promote historic preservation in Los Angeles County.
Donate to the Preservation Advocacy Fund
Share your commitment to preservation by purchasing merchandise from the Los Angeles Conservancy! We carry an impressive selection of books and collectible items as well as gift memberships and walking tour passes.
Through honor gifts, you can give to the Conservancy in memory of a loved one. Honor gifts are a meaningful way to acknowledge those people who have made a difference in your life. When your honor gift is received, the Conservancy will send a personalized letter to the person you indicated, notifying them of your thoughtful donation.
Ralphs/Food 4 Less Community Contribution Program
Supporting preservation couldn't be easier: through the Ralphs/Food 4 Less Community Contribution Program, each time you use your Ralphs or Food 4 Less Rewards Card, a portion of your total purchase is donated to the Conservancy.
Since the Conservancy began its partnership with Ralphs/Food 4 Less four years ago, supporters have contributed thousands of dollars simply by buying groceries!
Registering is quick, easy, and free:

Note: If you already participate in the program, you'll need to renew for the current term: September 1, 2012 - August 31, 2013. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you participate through Food 4 Less, you do not need to reregister.
If you don’t have a Ralphs Rewards Card, you can get one at the customer service desk of any Ralphs.
If you have a Food-4-Less Rewards Card and have not registered it, you can register online at Food4Less.com.
Gifts of Stock and Planned Giving
Through gifts of stock and planned giving, you can make longer-term arrangements to help conserve our cultural heritage.
The Conservancy welcomes gifts of stock. You can easily transfer gifts of stock to the Conservancy through your own and the Conservancy's stock brokers.
When making your estate plans, please consider a bequest to the Conservancy. Your planned gift of cash or securities will help ensure the future of preservation in Los Angeles. For more information on gifts of stock or planned giving, please call the Development Office at (213) 430-4204.
In addition to the generous support of our members, the Los Angeles Conservancy relies on assistance for specific projects as well as general operations for education and advocacy throughout the year. If you are interested in supporting specific Conservancy events or initiatives, please call the Development Office at (213) 430-4204.
We wish to express heartfelt thanks to the foundations, companies, and individuals who provided financial and in-kind support as sponsors, underwriters, and members of the Conservancy in 2011.
