Your gift ensures that the Mission Inn Foundation can support a vision of a robust Riverside community through its active history and educational programs, such as its Landmark guided tours and Hands On History education program. Through guided experiences within the Mission Inn, MIF docents impart historical context on how the histories and development of both the Inn and Riverside are deeply intertwined. Youth Ambassadors, a Hands on History program, equips Riverside youth with public speaking and leadership skills, encouraging a new generation to volunteer and build their community. The efforts of the Mission Inn Foundation to preserve, share and live the legacy of the Mission Inn are supported through gifts like yours.
