Cabrillo National Monument Foundation (CNMF)

Consider making a donation to the Cabrillo National Monument Foundation. The Foundation is a private nonprofit organization with an IRS 501(c)(3) status which provides support for special projects at Cabrillo National Monument. The Foundation relies solely on revenues generated by the bookstore in the Visitor Center at the park, visitor convenience services, and the membership program to fund such things as the park visitor user guide The Cabrillo Journal, printing of the park brochure, subscriptions and books for the park library, living history programs and scientific research. They have been a Cooperating Association at Cabriilo since 1956. You can visit their website at


Monetary Contributions

In addition to our donation kiosks at the visitor center, Cabrillo National Monument maintains a general donation account into which contributions and donations are deposited. The donor receives a letter of acknowledgement from the park superintendent and other recognition, as appropriate.

Unless the donor specifies how they would like the funds to be spent, general donation account funds are used at the national monument's discretion for interpretive, educational or research projects. Large donations may be earmarked for specific projects determined mutually by the donor and the national monument.
