Arizona Site Steward Program Foundation
Through strategic fundraising and public education, we ensure the sustainability of the Arizona Site Steward Program's role in monitoring and preserving cultural resources.
The Arizona Site Steward Program Foundation was founded in 2017.
The original intent of the Foundation was to ensure that the more than 800+ volunteer member- organization would always have a structure of support to continue its mission of monitoring prehistoric and historic archaeological sites.
Providing public awareness and education about cultural resources has been and remains the key initiatives of the Foundation.
Today, fundraising to support these initiatives is a chief strategic priority.
