Why support FFPA?

The achievements of the past provide the knowledge and inspiration to current and later generations to imagine and develop the innovations of the future. The Powerhouse stands as tangible evidence of these past achievements and preserving it will provide a shining light and inspiration to the innovators of the future. FFPA is a cooperating association of the California State Parks in this ongoing effort to preserve and develop this unique historical resource.

Where does the money go?

Funds generated through donations, memberships, special events and the sale of interpretive items enable us to support State Parks’ educational and interpretive programs and activities, as well as fund research, displays/exhibits and literature pertaining to the Powerhouse. Additionally, association money assists in preserving and conserving the facility and its features.
