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.

About the Del Mar Foundation

Founded in 1982, the Del Mar Foundation is Del Mar’s community foundation and its oldest 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We sponsor a wide range of programs and events, make community grants, and manage over $9 million in endowment and reserve funds to benefit Del Mar and the San Dieguito Lagoon.

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. 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.

Leaders

The Del Mar Foundation is governed by an 11-to-15-member volunteer Board of Directors. We are an active, hands-on organization, relying on volunteers and donations from a cross-section of the community.
