The Church in Ocean Park Endowment:

Ensuring The Church in Ocean Park is Here For Future Generations


The Church in Ocean Park Endowment was established to assure that the preservation and ongoing use of the Church's three historically recognized buildings in Santa Monica, as well as its significant social, racial and economic justice programs, have the proper foundation to ensure their longevity and sustainability over the decades. 


We encourage you to donate in any amount; no amount is too small. We encourage you to give now, but also to consider including the Church in Ocean Park in your will or estate planning.

"The Church in Ocean Park to me is the embodiment of the power of interfaith collaboration for good. As a trustee for the last two decades, I know the Endowment is vital to the historic preservation and meaningful use of our 100+ year old buildings, as well as keeping alive the Church's stalwart commitment to social justice that also extends over the last century."

“The Church in Ocean Park brings together people of different life experiences who want to help make positive changes in the community and in the world.  We are of many faith traditions and no faith tradition, expanding our understanding of the world and our place in it.  Help us ensure that this continues to be a place of healing and a home for the change-makers of the future.”
