Make a Donation
Donating to the ongoing project of restoring and maintaining Carmel Mission allows a person to become part of the very fabric of this historic place. It is invigorating to know that as you walk through these wondrous buildings, exhibits and garden pathways, that you are a part of a tradition that spans over two centuries of California History. It was here that Junipero Serra oversaw the mission system which eventually gave way to the religious and social structures that would become the “Golden State.” You can help in various ways.
A convenient, consistent way to help our church grow:
Donate by Mail
The Carmel Mission accepts unrestricted or donations restricted to a particular fund or ministry for example: “Carmel Mission Restoration Fund” or to the “Carmel Mission Ministries Fund.” You can send a check made out to these funds or simply paid to the order of the Carmel Mission and indicate in the memo portion of the check how you would like your contribution used. These donations may be sent by mail to:
Fr. Paul Murphy
