In February 2010, The Tiffany & Co. Foundation announced a $1 million grant to The Trust for Public Land (TPL) for its Campaign to Save Cahuenga Peak, home of the Hollywood Sign. Cahuenga Peak is the land adjacent to the Hollywood Sign, currently under threat of development. TPL has launched a campaign to purchase the 138-acre Cahuenga Peak site and plans to add the land to the adjoining Griffith Park, the nation's fourth most visited park. The campaign will permanently protect the view of the Hollywood Sign, preserve a remarkably intact ecosystem of native plants and animals, and increase access to park spaces.

This is the Foundation's first major grant in Los Angeles, and the Foundation is proud to protect such an important icon and piece of land for the residents of Los Angeles and visitors from around the world. This grant is a part of the Foundation's urban parks program which was designed to enhance, protect and create open spaces in urban areas like New York, Chicago and Houston as well.

Anisa Kamadoli Costa, President of The Tiffany & Co. Foundation, joined City of Los Angeles Councilmember Tom LaBonge; Will Rogers, The Trust for Public Land President; Barry Sanders, President of the Board of Commissioners of the Recreation and Parks Department of the City of Los Angeles; and Sam Hodder, The Trust for Public Land California State Director to announce this campaign to the public.
