Fort Ross Donor Benches

Fort Ross Conservancy offers customized donor bench plaques at Fort Ross State Historic Park. Whether you select a bench location with a view of the Pacific Ocean or one nestled quietly in the trees, your personalized bench will provide years of recognition of the important people or occasions in your life.

Minimum donation for a donor plaque is $2,500.00, with payment to Fort Ross Conservancy.

 

Funding from the Donor Bench Program will help us provide interpretation at Fort Ross--this means the FRC team can continue to:
        • work the fort compound and Call House Museum to share their knowledge with visitors, 
        • write and make available brochures on various facets of our park, 
        • coordinate community service with the Scouts and school groups,
        • staff the visitor center and museum, 
        • keep the www.fortross.org website updated, 
        • organize all special events, 
        • provide educational tours to visitors, and more!

We currently have 2 benches available for personal dedication.  Fill out the application form here. Acceptance by Fort Ross of bench donation offers are subject to the terms and conditions on the application form.
