Cascade Rail Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.
Cascade Rail Foundation accepts donations of photos, documents, and objects related to the history of the Milwaukee Road in Washington. Donations can be made through Pacific Northwest Railroad Archive and they will convey your donation to us. You may also contact us to donate materials directly to Cascade Rail Foundation.
We also can sometimes make use of tools, building materials, and other items at the South Cle Elum Rail Yard. Please contact us if you have something you think we could use.
We are an all-volunteer organization. The more volunteers we have, the more we can do! You can help us at South Cle Elum, at Pacific Northwest Railroad Archive in Burien, WA, or maybe at home. Please contact us and let us know your interests, abilities, and availability.
