Filoli Center

Filoli Center is a charitable 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose operations are managed by the Filoli Governing Board. A paid staff of approximately 60 individuals (many on a part-time basis) and volunteer ranks that exceed 700 members of the community are responsible for a wide range of day-to-day activities including horticulture, botanical arts, nature education, programming, membership, ticketing, maintenance, preservation, special event planning and execution, food service, and retail.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation

Chartered by U.S. Congress in 1949, the National Trust for Historic Preservation is a non-profit, private organization whose mission is to “protect the irreplaceable that tells America’s story.” The Trust provides financial assistance to restore historic buildings and homes in local communities around the U.S. On Capitol Hill, the Trust advocates for public policies that benefit historic places. On the local level, the organization supports local grass roots efforts to preserve historic resources. Thanks to the generosity of the Roth family, Filoli became an Historic Site in 1975. Filoli, like all sites, is a beneficiary of the National Trust’s many services including support in the areas of funding, leadership and organizational development, governance, educational opportunities and preservation practices.
