On August 3rd Sandra Hoyle, President of the Del Mar Foundation, presented our $180,820 donation to the City of Del Mar to restore funding for budget items the City had cut from its budget because of the Covid-19 crisis.

We are happy to report that the donation was accepted by a unanimous vote of the City Council, and can now be used to benefit our community.

Thank you to our donors, volunteers, and supporters who, over the past 38 years, have worked to form the Del Mar Foundation into what it is today, with the resources to make grants and donations for important community needs.
