The Fort Nisqually Foundation's goal is to support the restoration, preservation, historical interpretation and education programs of the Fort Nisqually Living History Museum. The mission of the Fort Nisqually Foundation is to pursue all available sources of funding to support the restoration, preservation, historical interpretation, and education programs at Fort Nisqually, a restored Hudson’s Bay Company trading post and living history museum.

Feast for the Fort! 

Come support the Fort Nisqually Foundation by bringing your friends and family to feast for a great cause! 

Two local restarurants: Joseppi's (2207 N. Pearl St.) and Brewers Row (3205 N. 26th)  have partnered with us to host Feast for the Fort. 

It's a simple concept: you eat out and they donate a percentage of their receipts for that night to the foundation. They are each allowing us to have a small silent auction as well. Watch our Facebook page for some teasers of what we're auctioning off. 

All proceeds will go toward supporting the excellent programming and educational offerings of Fort Nisqually Living History Museum. 

We will have costumed interpreters there to talk with folks and if you are so inclined you can purchase a membership or make a donation. Psst, a little insider secret: we're beginning our Holland America Lines cruise raffle that night as well! The winner will be drawn at the Christmas Regale December 5th, 2020.
