Friends of the Davis County Courthouse
A $25.00 annual unrestricted donation identifies a Friend of the Davis County Courthouse. By joining and renewing annually, continuing Friendships provide DCCPF with crucial operating funds needed to research options and make recommendations to the County Board of Supervisors as they address emergency, short and long-term projects. Friends also support research and applications for grants and other funding opportunities for historic preservation of the Davis County Courthouse building and grounds. For continuing annual support, Friends of the Davis County Courthouse will receive news and event information, articles and press releases via email at the time of their release.
