Donations to the Old Fort Niagara Association

Old Fort Niagara depends upon generous donors to help us fulfill our mission to preserve this unique, historic site, educate the public about its rich history, and collect objects and documentary materials related to the site and the Niagara region.

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund supports the development and operation of educational programs including daily interpretive programs, special events, school programs, outreach and distance learning programs. 

General Contributions

General contributions are always welcome to defray the general operating expenses. Old Fort Niagara receives no general operating support from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation and depends upon admission fees, museum shop sales, membership fees, and donations from its supporters to carry out its programs of preservation and education.
