Mission: The mission of the Del Mar Foundation is to promote civic pride and cohesiveness, acquire and preserve open space, improve beaches and parklands, raise and grant funds, and sponsor diverse cultural programs and community events in Del Mar.
Results: The Del Mar Foundation is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2012. Since 2005, the Foundation has funded over $200,000 in community grants, and brought together community volunteers and board members for more than 20,000 volunteer hours. As Del Mar’s oldest 501(c)(3) non-profit, the Del Mar Foundation sponsors programs, makes grants, and manages over $1,000,000 in endowment funds to benefit the community and the San Dieguito Lagoon. The community endowment provides long-term funding stability for community needs. Best known for our Summer Twilight concerts, First Thursdays cultural arts series, and children’s events such as the Easter Egg Hunt and 4th of July Parade, the Foundation sponsors a wide array of community programs. The Foundation also provides financial support to community organizations and projects such as the Del Mar Library, Lifeguards and the Beach Safety Center, the Del Mar Garden Club, Del Mar Community Connections, and the Shores acquisition. Over the years, the Foundation has also served as an incubator or fiscal sponsor for many of the present day non-profits that so greatly enrich our community.
