Donations & Membership

The Carmel Valley Historical Society invites you to donate or become a member. Founded in 1987, the Society is dedicated to preserving Carmel Valley’s rich and unique heritage.

Since our History Center first opened in December of 2013 we continue to organize our many historical artifacts and our volunteers constantly work toward adding new and interesting exhibits each year.

The future of our Society depends upon memberships and contributions from our community. Membership dues cover ongoing costs such as building maintenance, computing, consulting, archival preservation, and exhibits. Our quarterly newsletters and website keep our members and Carmel Valley’s surrounding communities apprised of upcoming exhibits or events, historical vignettes, and other interesting news.

We encourage you to donate and/or join our membership online using the button above, or you can print out a paper membership form and mail us a check. If so, a paper copy can be printed by clicking here.

We are a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization and will gratefully acknowledge your donation to help us preserve the past for current and future generations. Our federal tax id is #77-0174405.

Thank you for joining us!
