FORHS offers experience in many areas including: heritage, education, research, volunteer management, board governance, capital project fundraising, and special events management.
FORHS welcomes those who can commit between 5 and 10 hours every month to this worthwhile endeavour. All ages are welcome to apply.

The Rutherfords were great community benefactors and their legacy of hospitality, community spirit, and charity continue in Edmonton and Alberta. Without their philanthropy and vision, hard work, and neighbourly outlook , our community would not have blossomed as it did under their watch.
The Friends of Rutherford House Society relies on the generosity of community members and philanthropists to keep this proud history alive. If you would like to help, please consider making a donation!
