The Camp Roberts Museum receives no government funding, so your donations are very important to us.  We are an official non-profit organization in California, overseen by the State Military Department.  The Museum is run by an all-volunteer force, which means that the Chairman/Curator, all the other Board Members,
and all the Docents put their own time (and money) into running and improving the Museum.  We subsist on visitor donations, special donations, an occasional small grant, our membership program, and proceeds from the Museum Gift Shop.  All proceeds from books written by the Curator go to the Museum as well.  Anyone wishing to help the Museum in its mission to preserve and relate the history of Camp Roberts and its soldiers is invited to send a check in any amount, made payable to the "Camp Roberts Museum."  Our mailing address is:
The Camp Roberts Museum
Bldg. 114
Camp Roberts, CA  93451-5000.

Donors will receive a formal letter of thanks, noting the amount of the donation along with the Museum's non-profit tax-exempt number for tax purposes.

The Museum is always eager to accommodate group tours.  Our volunteers are very conscientious and eager to host larger groups that cannot make it on our normal Thursday or Saturday.

If your tour group, veterans group or civic club would like a special tour of the Museum, please contact  the Chairman/Curator, Gary McMaster, at (805) 286-6431, to make arrangements.
