Sponsorship - Get On-Board

The Tacoma Preservation Society (TPS) is fortunate to have some very generous partners. The scale of the project is such that every gift received is crucial to the success of the restoration and preservation.

The TPS is a registered Donor Gift Recipient. All donations over $2 are tax deductable.

Through sponsorship, the Tacoma Preservation Society aims to deliver benefits to both parties. For us it means we are able to continue the preservation of this wonderful vessel by the provision of particular services or products we need for restoration and maintenance.
