Support the Fort

Because of the generous support of our donors and members, the Fort Ligonier staff is able to maintain and sustain this significant historic site. We are pleased to welcome thousands of school children, families, individuals, and groups every year.

As we advance our strategic plan, the stewardship of our resources remains especially important as it is challenging to keep a 250-year old institution vibrant. Your tax-deductible gift will help us continue our mission to preserve, research, exhibit, interpret and advocate the history and material culture of the British-American fort and settlement.

Fort Ligonier is also an approved EITC (Educational Improvement Tax Credit) organization. Learn more about EITC.
