Friends of the Fuerst Farmstead

The purpose of the Friends of the Fuerst Farmstead is:

  • To preserve historic Fuerst Farmstead
  • To develop a preservation plan for the Fuerst Farmstead as an historical park
  • To support efforts to preserve historical resources in Novi
  • To raise funds to implement preservation efforts
The group is in the process of registering with the state of Michigan as a non-profit organization and will apply for and expects to receive a determination of tax-exempt status from the IRS. The Friends of the Fuerst Farmstead also anticipates having a solicitation license from the state of Michigan which will allow it to ask for donations of money and for in-kind contributions.
