Endowment

Dr. Jerry V. Ramsey and Elaine Perdue Ramsey
Fund for Fort Nisqually

Thanks to a generous gift from Dr. Jerry V. Ramsey and Elaine Perdue Ramsey, an Endowment Fund was established for Fort Nisqually Living History Museum in 1999. Gifts to the Fort Nisqually Endowment Fund are permanently invested by the experts at the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation. The earnings from the investments are granted annually and exclusively to Fort Nisqually Living History Museum.

The first grant from this endowment was received in 2007 and the funds were used to expand and improve the summer education programs which include a variety of summer history camps for children from kindergarten to eighth grade and the "Education Outstation", a hands-on activity area where children of all ages can try their hands at a variety of 19th century skills and crafts.

Each year since that time the endowment funds have been dedicated to supporting the quality education programming that Fort Nisqually offers for children of all ages.

Let your family know how much Fort Nisqually and Pacific Northwest history means to you: remember Fort Nisqually with a bequest to the Fort Nisqually Endowment Fund. At the same time, encourage your loved ones to do the same – in your name or theirs, every dollar counts.
