Since October of
2002, our initial mission has been to pay down the mortgage on the
17.1 acres to insure it will remain in perpetuity for all to
appreciate. Through very kind donations of hundreds of people
and organizations over the years, we have not reached the final
stages of this first phase of our mission. With the mortgage
at $55,000 (April, 2010) (from the initial $320,000), we are
anticipating having the mortgage retired by September of 2010.
If you or your organization want to be recognized as a Charter or
Benefactor member, now is your chance to be permanently recognized.
We appreciate your
consideration and generosity. Please Help Protect this National Historic Landmark!

Completed!-The first part of Phase I was to raise enough money to
secure financing for the purchase of the 17.1 acres, which included
the remaining portion of the prison compound, Fort Johnson, and
several acres of land surrounding these features. The agreed upon
purchase price from Baycliffs Development was $350,000.00. The FDJI
raised the down payment and purchased the land in October, 2002.
second phase of the fundraising will be to secure the rest of the
money required to retire the mortgage of the 17.1 acres. We
have reduced the mortgage to $55,000.00. We anticipate
reaching this goal by September, 2010.
3rd Goal-The final
immediate goal is to raise an additional $150,000.00 for
maintenance, security, and the beginnings of an endowment for
long-term preservation. Our fund raising objectives will be
switched to this as soon as the mortgage is retired.
