Oregon Fire Service Museum is a non-governmental 501(c)3 not-for-profit which relies entirely on membership dues, grants, donations, merchandise sales, and other fundraising opportunities to meet our expenses. We believe Oregon’s fire service history is worth preserving and passing on to future generations, but we need your help.
Oregon Fire Service Museum operating expenses are primarily funded by museum membership dues. This covers expenses for utilities, transporting the museum’s fire apparatus, insurance, and maintenance for apparatus, and other office expenses. All museum board members and staff are volunteers.
Lease expenses for the property at Powerland Heritage Park are very minimal. Budget projections suggest museum facility expenses will continue to be covered
by membership dues.
By becoming a sustaining member, you will be part of
something that benefits not only the people of Oregon,
but the thousands of visitors from other states and
countries. Join other sustaining members and make
a difference. Your contribution is tax-deductible.
