Friends of the Presidio and Museum

The Friends of the Presidio and Museum (FOTTPAM) is a non profit organization that manages the park.  Our Park is a Partner-Park, and the Friends keep the Park open year-round with help from donors, volunteers, and with visitor fees.

We constantly seek to improve the telling of the story of Tubac to our many visitors from around the world. The funds provided by you will help us preserve and maintain the Park as well as keep it attractive, clean and safe.  Your donation will help in this effort.

Recently, the Board adopted an invigorated strategic plan and set a $50,000 fundraising goal to lift the Presidio to the next level of achievement. Achieving this will allow FOTTPAM to expand educational programs for children, host additional special events and lecture series, accommodate additional staffing needed to help facilitate additional programs and events, and possibly returning to seven-days-a-week operation. The Friends receive no operational financial support from State Parks.
