As with many historical sites, the Monterey Pass Battlefield relies on
contributions and sponsors to conduct daily operations. Interpretive
costs, grounds maintenance, and historical events cost more each year. As
interest grows in the Monterey Pass story, the demand for facilities,
signage, and other means of providing historical education also increase.
The FMPB, Inc. Board and volunteers of Monterey Pass Battlefield welcome
any contribution you may consider to assist in continuing this worthy
cause. There are many ways to contribute, some of which are memberships
and charitable contributions.
