GivingTuesday took place on Tuesday, November 28th. Thank you to all those who participated and helped us raise $10,150! The giving window is still open so if you happened to have missed GivingTuesday, we still have a few weeks before the end of the year and could absolutely use your support in our mission to honor diverse perspectives, enrich collaborative conversations, and inspire broader understanding through stewardship of Rancho Los Cerritos’ natural and cultural history.

Rancho Los Cerritos is not only a National, State and Local Historic Landmark, but also a living and breathing testament to our heritage. A place where the young and the young at heart can connect with our shared past, and, through its unique offerings, make sense of issues facing us today.
Southern California has a rich and vibrant history. From the Tongva, who were the area’s earliest known inhabitants, to the Spanish explorers, Gold Rush miners and the migrants fleeing hardship during the Great Depression, Southern California has seen its share of booms and busts, floods and droughts, missionaries and migrants. And through it all, Rancho Los Cerritos has stood witness to our shared history.
