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.
Gateway to History Campaign
This capital campagin seeks to raise $7 million to create a new visitor center, restore historic landscaping, convert the Fort Niagara Officer's club to a museum of 19th and 20th century history, and renew exhibits inside the Fort.
The Annual Fund supports the development and operation of educational programs including daily interpretive programs, special events, school programs, outreach and distance learning programs.
Regimental Field Musick
Funds are used to maintain uniforms and equipment of the Regimental Field Music of the Eighth Regiment of Foot, Old Fort Niagara's fife and drum unit.
Special Event Sponsorships
Donors can underwrite a special event at Old Fort Niagara. A one-day sponsorship is $500.00 and a weekend sponsorship is $1,000.00.
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.
