How to Help “Save the Inn”
The Navarro-by-the-Sea Center for Riparian and Estuarine Research (NSCR) urgently needs funding for the critical stabilization work necessary to save Capt. Fletcher's Inn. The architect and structural engineer working with NSCR on the stabilization plans for the Inn have indicated that it's still not too late to save the structure, but we must act quickly. NSCR is moving forward with a capital improvement campaign to fund installation of a new foundation, structural retrofitting of the walls, repair and replacement of deteriorated siding, installation of a permanent roof, and reconstruction of the historic front porch to the building, among other improvements. Your help is especially critical now, due to the extreme cuts in state budgets, including that of the California Dept of Parks and Recreation.
Please consider making a generous contribution in our efforts to “Save the Inn”. The following form may be used to contribute to either Navarro-by-the-Sea Center or The Charles Fletcher Society for historical and genealogical research. Please indicate whether you are making a contribution towards the “Save the Inn” building fund or your membership dues for The Charles Fletcher Society. All donors to the “Save the Inn” fund will be invited to the groundbreaking and opening ceremonies, assuming we reach that goal. All major donors making a contribution of $1,000 or more will be permanently recognized in interpretive displays at the Inn, on our website, and publicity as part of our capital improvement campaign.
Navarro-by-the-Sea Center (NSCR) is continuing to seek grants and funding from private foundations to complete the critical Stabilization and Rehabilitation of Capt. Fletcher's Inn (see Rehabilitation Report and Current Planning pages). But we need your help to meet match requirements for those grants. Please help us save Capt. Fletcher's Inn. Give generously. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
