Black Friday. Small Business Saturday. Cyber Monday…. and #GivingTuesday.

With the largest shopping weekend of the year close upon us, the Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation wants to remind you of the event that finishes it off. November 27th, Giving Tuesday.
What is it?
#GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season: a reminder of the “reason for the season. It’s a celebration of giving and philanthropy when together, on one day, millions of people demonstrate our common capacity to give.
Why take part?
What could be a better way to start the holidays than to support a cause you believe in? The Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation works tirelessly all year round to promote our mission of preserving and protecting the Gaslamp for future generations. We know it’s a mission that you, our supporters, are passionate about as well. Help us to continue to serve by donating!

Be A Part of Gaslamp History

Did you know the cobblestones in our Pocket Park are historic? Many of the stones traveled to San Diego as ship ballast. When they reached San Diego they were re-purposed as street curbs up and down 5th Avenue.When the Street Curbs were replaced the GQHF saved these historic stones. You can be a part of Gaslamp History by buying an engraved brick!
