Long Beach Gives 2023 Campaign

We are proud to announce our participation with this year’s Long Beach Gives campaign, a citywide, online fundraising effort that raises awareness and inspires community giving for Long Beach nonprofits. Last year, Long Beach Gives raised $1.96 million for 232 local nonprofit organizations.

This year, we are raising money to paint our historic Queen Anne Victorian headquarters and museum, the Bembridge House!

You can help protect this nationally-recognized landmark by making a tax-deductible donation at our Long Beach Gives page from now until September 21st.
