Our mission is to preserve Fort Worden’s legacy as an historic gathering place, to ensure its financial and environmental sustainability, and to enhance artistic, cultural, and educational opportunities for people of all ages, abilities, backgrounds, and income levels.

The Fort Worden Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit, conducts year-round fundraising engaging federal and state agencies, philanthropic organizations, and private donors. Funds raised support the rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of Fort Worden’s historic campus, strengthen established and support new partnerships and programming.

Surrounded by sea and mountains in historic Port Townsend, Fort Worden is a national treasure that enriches lives by engaging people in the arts, ideas, wellness, nature, community and play.
