Why Should I Support Old Mission San Luis Rey?
Old Mission San Luis Rey is an active Mission providing cultural, educational, historical and spiritual programs to the community and visitors from around the world. We must consistently seek funding for these ongoing projects through the support of private foundations, corporations, individuals and fund-raising events.
As you can imagine, operating and maintaining a historic site is costly. Old Mission San Luis Rey is a registered National Historic Landmark, yet it does not receive public funding for general operations and is not supported by Catholic Diocesan funds.Renovations to the buildings and property for modern safety standards (seismic retrofitting) and the preservation of the old structures require considerable funding... much more than the revenue that can be generated from our Museum tours or the Retreat Center and Cemetery. The Mission depends on volunteer support and the generosity of private donors, corporate partnerships, major fund-raising events, and grants to continue as a significant historic and cultural landmark.
