Estero…in the Beginning Sponsorship Form

To support and preserve Koreshan State Park, a quiet and peaceful refuge amid busy Fort Myers and Naples, you are invited to sponsor the fundraising event, Estero…..In The Beginning. This event will be held on Friday, March 19, 2021, at the Planetary Court, located in the middle of the historic settlement. 

The Friends of Koreshan State Park is a State-sanctioned Citizens Support Organization (CSO). This nonprofit corporation is given special status by Florida law that makes it possible for you to support your favorite state parks. In these times of budget shortages, CSOs are critical for providing much-needed funds. 

Koreshan State Park is rich in Estero’s history. The early 1900s were the glory years for the Koreshans, who acquired nearly 7,500 acres of land and constructed more than 70 buildings. They developed more than a dozen businesses. The membership gradually dwindled until, in 1956, only five members were remaining. In 1961, these Koreshan Unity members donated 305 acres to the State of Florida to make their land a historic site. 

All donations monetary or in-kind are welcome. Please contact FoKSP board members Vicki Little, 239-470-9715 vicki.little@icloud.com or Marianne Suffern, 708-267-7716 mksuffern@icloud.com for more information. 

Friends of Koreshan State Park is a 501(C)(3) Organization – Tax ID #85-8012702190C-7
