“I believe deeply in the mission of the Santa Monica Conservancy and I want to make sure that it is a critical and respected part of this community 100 years from now, just like the buildings we are trying to preserve. By making a planned gift, I can make a more substantial commitment to the Conservancy’s work, providing for my own needs now, and later for my family and my philanthropic priorities.” – Tom Cleys, Founding President, Santa Monica Conservancy
