A Private - Public Partnership
In 1813, defending Fort Meigs required a carefully designed facility, state-of-the-art equipment and resources, and superior tactics. Today, it takes much the same to preserve the history of Fort Meigs and the stories of those who lived and died here, and to present them in a way that makes people yearn to know more. That is why we have launched The Campaign for Fort Meigs, an initiative to raise $1.5 million in private funds that will enable us to:
- Enhance Fort Meigs' exhibits and programming, and fund and better promote special events. In doing so, we will not only provide more meaningful educational programs for the many schoolchildren, teachers, and families who visit us each year, but also enrich the experience of long-time visitors and attract new ones.
- Initiate site improvements that will make Fort Meigs a more exciting, attractive destination for out-of-town visitors, as well as a gathering place for families and organizations within our own community.
- Catalog and conserve objects in our highly regarded archaeological collection, and acquire new objects of importance to Fort Meigs.
- Make long term provision to fund on-going operations at Fort Meigs.
We need your help...
At Fort Meigs, we have been given an important charge: to preserve and present the past in a way that informs and enlightens, intrigues and enriches, and helps people understand their own place in history. We are committed to this task, but we need your help to carry it out. Your support of The Campaign for Fort Meigs will not only preserve the memory of those who came before us; it will also be an investment in the future of those yet to come.

We would also be happy to suggest ways to honor or memorialize a loved one, celebrate a milestone in your life, or commemorate the service and sacrifice of friends and family in the armed services through your gift.
