The Dutra Museum Foundation is dedicated to educating and promoting an understanding of the history of dredging, the value of developing and reclaiming the California Delta and the significant role The Dutra Group and the Dutra family has played within this field.

Our goal is to raise and manage funds to expand, preserve, exhibit and interpret the museum’s collection for public use and for scholarly research. The Foundation’s commitment to the community includes the annual funding of higher education scholarships for Rio Vista High School, The Portuguese Historical and Cultural Society and beyond.

The Dutra Museum Foundation is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization. Donations to the foundation are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by IRS guidelines.
