Friends of Tampa Union Station
Friends of Tampa Union Station, an IRS-registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, was founded in 2008 by a group of citizens eager to preserve Tampa Union Station’s colorful past and to assure its future.
We raise funds for the Tampa Union Station endowment fund at the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay and for other preservation-related needs at this historic landmark. Our group also helps organize National Train Day festivities at Tampa Union Station every May.
