The goal of the Dutra Museum Foundation is to educate and promote an understanding of the history of dredging, the importance of the dredging industry and the value of developing and maintaining our California Delta.

With the help of donations from supporters and members like you, we will be able to continue to expand, preserve and exhibit our collection to the public.
 The Foundation's commitment to the community includes the annual funding of higher education scholarships for important local educational organizations such as Rio Vista High School, The Portuguese Historical and Cultural Society, and beyond. The Dutra Museum Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation that receives no state or federal funding. We depend solely upon donations from individuals and corporations.
