We are a community-based, 501(c)(3) organization focused on maintaining and preserving California historical landmarks for future generations. With the help of our tireless staff, we organize fundraisers, maintain and replace California Historical Landmark markers and plaques, and educate the public about the importance of the history that built the great state of California.
Across the state of California metal thieves and vandals are stealing and destroying our history. Have you ever wondered if anyone cares? We care! We are the the California Landmark Foundation and we need your help to continue our mission to maintain and preserve California Historical Landmarks.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, we thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
At last count there are 33 California Historical Landmark plaques or markers missing and 118 that were never dedicated at all. These plaques give valuable historical information and deserve to be replaced or installed. We need your help! Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know. We are always looking for volunteers to help make our vision a reality. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you.
The current cost to replace a California Historical Landmark plaque are as follows:
Traditional Bronze: $5,200
Alternate Aluminum: $3,200
Installation: $400 to $3,000
Please help us replace these important historical landmark plaques.
