Why Join the Friends of Sutter's Fort?

The Friends of Sutter's Fort is a cooperating 501 (C)(3) nonprofit association dedicated to the preservation and protection of Sutter's Fort State Historic Park, and is the proud supporter of the educational and interpretive programs at Sutter's Fort.

With your help, we can:

  • Continue to repair and replace interpretive tools and supplies that allow us to share what the Fort was like in the 1840s.
  • Expand our popular and family-friendly Hands on History events, as well as other educational programming.
  • Provide grants to schools participating in one of our educational programs.
  • Fund critical preservation projects such as the restoration of the blacksmith shop and repainting of the exterior and interior walls.

Your membership makes it possible for us to support all this and more at Sutter's Fort State Historic Park.
