Let's Save Avila Pier!

Friends of Avila Pier (FOAP), Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed by volunteers from the Avila Beach community for the sole purpose of assisting in the raising of funds to maintain, renovate and preserve Avila Pier. 

Port San Luis Harbor District has revised a repair bill for the Avila Pier and we need to raise $1m from our amazing community to ensure that we can repair and preserve the marine heritage and character of the local port for future generations. 

There are multiple ways the pier benefits our community:

 - Tourism
 - Youth recreation
 -  Environmental awareness
 - Fishing/Crabbing
 - Town revenue

Please pledge what you can, everything helps!!! All donations are tax deductible. 

We thank you for visiting our fundraising page and your interest in saving our pier.
