The Museum Foundation is a non-profit volunteer organization of dedicated community members who work to promote the Anacortes Museum’s preservation and development through memberships, donations, fundraising and in-kind contributions. The Foundation hosts the museum’s special events and spearheads projects ranging from publishing "A Walking Tour of Historic Downtown Anacortes," as well as raising funds for:
Exhibits and programs at the Maritime Heritage Center and museum
Maintenance of the landmark W.T. Preston snagboat, and
Recent improvements to the courtyard of the museum’s Carnegie building.
Membership dollars help fund special events and museum necessities that exceed monies available from the museum’s annual operating budget. For more information about membership in the Museum Foundation, please contact the Museum by phone at 360-293-1915 or email the Museum.
