The Friends of Sutter's Fort believe in making history relevant. We collaborate with California State Parks every day to preserve and protect historic structures and artifacts at Sutter's Fort State Historic Park (SHP), and to engage visitors of all ages. We work hard to raise funds in support of Sutter's Fort, and to deliver the critical funding necessary to provide over 50,000 students each year with meaningful educational experiences that bring history to life.

The work of preserving structures that are over 100 years old is an ongoing, daily task. Friends of Sutter's Fort is committed to helping fund these projects so that Sutter's Fort can be enjoyed for future generations to come. In the past four years alone, we have provided critical funding for several major presentations projects valued at over $800,000, including the painting of the exterior walls, the restoration of the blacksmith shop, and the painting of the interior walls.
Friends of Sutter's Fort is proud to be the sponsor of these programs and provides critical funding for CA State Park staffing, materials, and supplies.
