Membership FAQ

To the Members of the DANA Adobe & Cultural Center,

We would like to thank our members for your loyalty and support of DANA over the past years. As costs have increased, to provide simplicity, and due to the financial crunch caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, DANA has modified its membership program.  The individual and family memberships have increased slightly. In addition, DANA has established a formal business membership program.  The membership program provides some new benefits to our members, and we hope you will renew and upgrade this year.  (If you already renewed your membership in 2021, we will honor the old price, but provide you with the new benefits).

Executive Director

Membership is at the heart of the Dana Adobe.

Membership plays a vital role in sustaining the many educational programs and events that are offered. With your support, we can also preserve the open space surrounding the adobe while continuing to share the story of the Californios and the Rancho Era events that shaped the state of California.

Join the Nipomo Amigos as a member or donor at any level.

As a member, you can take pleasure in all that the rancho has to offer, that your membership will provide fundamental financial support for educational programs, historic gardens, conservation, and exhibitions.

We really appreciate your generous, tax-deductible gift that enables us to continue our work to preserve  DANA Adobe & Cultural Cente, as a cultural and historic treasure for the region and state.
