Maritime Phase II

Maritime Center Phase II Renovations

As of July 2014, the capital campaign for Phase II Renovations of the Pacific Maritime Heritage Center was underway. It is off to a promising start as we received a $200,000 matching grant pledge from the Doerfler Family Trust. Phase II incorporates the majority of the lower floor of the Maritime Center, some 8000 square-feet, as well as exterior renovations.

With a stunning panoramic view of the Bayfront, this multi-purpose venue will accommodate small stage and music performances, film festivals, presentations and special events of all kinds. In addition, the lower level will boast a 110-person capacity conference room, catering area, and a large set of restrooms with a bridal changing area. And last but certainly not least, a public elevator will be installed creating ADA compliant access to all three floors of the Maritime Center.

Donate today and your generosity will go twice as far! We have received a $200,000 matching grant pledge from the Doerfler Family Trust that will match your donation (up to $200,000), thus doubling your donation. Our goal is to begin construction on Phase II this fall. Call (541) 265-7509 or email us through this site for more information.
