Who We Are

Century Circle Members are among the most committed supporters of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. They appreciate all the desert has to offer and invest in the long-term preservation and growth of California’s largest state park. Century Circle Members live near and far, visit often or even once a year. What brings us together is our strong affection for this special place and a desire to share it with others.

What We Support

Century Circle supports the most pressing needs of the park including:

Land Acquisition and Protection – In 2012, Anza-Borrego Foundation celebrated 50,000 acres acquired. That’s 37,812 American football fields!

Youth and Adult Education – This includes field trips, Camp Borrego and the PORTS program that reaches a combined 9,000+ individuals annually.

Research – Over the past 10 years, ABF has sponsored over $200,000 in desert-related research grants and scholarships to individuals.

Park Support – Last year Anza-Borrego Foundation provided more than $900,000 to fund park services and direct support.

What We Do

In addition to giving generously, Century Circle Members have opportunities to learn more about Anza-Borrego Desert State Park through exclusive tours, lectures and events. Whether it’s a walk to view a new wash or an update on nature’s reconstruction after a storm, Century Circle Members have access to Park officials and foundation staff for the most recent news. For example, ABF holds exclusive Century Circle socials and salons on timely topics in their homes and other special locations.
