Our Mission

The Pride of Ione Foundation believes that an understanding and appreciation of our history is essential to maintaining a unique and meaningful identity as a community. By preserving our past we assure that this legacy is passed on to future generations and it will shape our future through a shared understanding of our history.

We accomplish this by:


and partnering with local and regional individuals, business and institutions, both public and private to promote awareness of Ione’s past, present and future.


engaging and educational programs of the history of Ione and its citizens by providing living, interactive historical archives that everyone can access and anyone can contribute to.


projects that foster Community Service and benefit the community today and that all ages can actively participate in


Ione and its citizens by providing opportunities for the community to gather. We continually seek fresh ways to connect people to history.
