The Cabrillo National Monument Conservancy (CNMC) is an organization initiated on the 4 of July, 2012 by a group of folks who believed it would be financially advantageous to Cabrillo National Monument (CNM) to complete its circle of national program-level non-profit partners by adding a friends group, which can assist fundraising in ways not open a Cooperating Association or the Volunteers-in-Parks (VIP) program. CNMC's goal is to expand fundraising to support our park while enhancing CNM's connections with the community - be it San Diegans or all of CNM's national and international visitors.
CNMC became a corporation on the 31 of January, 2013 with a mission to work with the CNM and its partners to conserve the natural resources and cultural heritage of CNM and the National Park Service (NPS), and to promote education. We work in collaboration with CNM's other supporting non-profit partners: the VIP and Cabrillo National Monument Foundation (a cooperating association).
