Since 1982, the Del Mar Foundation has worked to bring the Del Mar community together through a wide range of events, programs, and grants. If you have fond memories from these past 30 years of the Foundation's history, we would love to hear from you.  If your organization has been one of the many grant recipients of the Del Mar Foundation, we would love to hear how we made a difference.

In the beginning there were "Del Mar Days" when thousands participated in triathlons, art shows, sand-castle building, artists’ home tours, and much more.  Over the last 30 years the Del Mar Foundation has added such events as End-of-Summer picnics, Twilight Concerts, Bluegrass performances, First Thursdays, Fourth of July Parades, Easter Egg hunts, Halloween parties, Santa Claus & Snow, and even a TEDxDelMar event.  And everyone in the community has made it happen.  We thank you!
We are collecting stories and pictures either by email:, or through the mail: Del Mar Foundation, P.O. Box 2913, Del Mar, CA. 92014.  Or give us a call and we would be happy to make special arrangements: 858-635-1363.
