Go 4th Raise Funds

What's red, white, and blue and attended by more than 35,000 people? The incredible Independence Day celebration at Fort Vancouver, of course! Did you know that this huge Fourth of July party is a not-for-profit event that relies heavily on corporate donations, individual contributions, and volunteers? There is a nominal charge to attend—$5 for adults—but that's just to cover costs. The Fort, and the North Bank's history and future, belong to everyone.

That's why the Fort Vancouver National Trust is pleased to offer an opportunity for nonprofit organizations to raise funds for themselves while selling advance tickets for the Independence Day event, sponsored by Bank of America. One dollar of every ticket sold (or 20%) goes to the local nonprofit doing the selling, and the rest of the funds generated from this "Go 4th Raise Funds" campaign will go directly toward covering the expense of our family-friendly Fourth of July extravaganza. It's an elegant idea: raise money for a good cause while at the same time supporting the community. To find out more, call 360-992-1804, e-mail events@fortvan.org, or click here.
