Help Improve Our Parks

The Friends of Fort Worden State Park is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization that supports park improvements and programs using funds raised on-site through fund raising activities such as its Gift Shop located in the Park Administration Building across from the Flagpole on the Parade Ground, in addition to tax-deductible contributions received through its annual membership program as well as one-time donations and other fundraising projects.


Becoming a member of The Friends of Fort Worden means that you are a part of a special group of people dedicated to sustaining and improving the total experience for visitors to this old venerable facility. Your membership fees and any donations go to everything from trail signage to building restoration. Imagine seeing families using improved camping facilities, old buildings coming to life again, students from all over the world taking part in Life Long Learning and thinking I helped make this happen. This is the special feeling that being a member can give you.

The Friends of Fort Worden has an important role in this exciting time as Fort Worden State Park transitions to a new governing structure. As such we are investing in expanding our membership by looking to add new membership benefits and improving our communications so all of our members can see where their contributions are going.

A one year membership can be had for as little as $25. A life long membership for $500. As a member you are entitled to a 10% discount on purchases at the Gift Shop.
