    Who We Are

     The Pere Marquette Memorial Association is a not for-profit entity established to restore and maintain the Father Jacques Marquette Memorial Site. 

    Preservation of the Memorial Site

    We are seeking to raise $100,000 in funds to restore the memorial site, and establish a fund to cover the costs of on-going maintenance to preserve this historic memorial site for generations to come.


    Help us reach our goal! We need your help to repair the memorial site. Click the button below to donate online to our fund at the Community Foundation for Mason County.

    Thank you for your support!
