The Friends of Robert H. Treman State Park was incorporated as a 501(c)3 educational, non-for-profit organization. It is chartered through the State Education Department of the State of New York. Its purpose is to conduct educational and history-related programs, services, and activities in keeping with the nature of the park, to assist in fund raising activities, the purchase of objects, equipment, and supplies for the benefit of the park, and to support this park for the benefit of the local community, the residents of the State of New York, and the general public.

In addition to giving general support to the park, the Friends apply for grants to fund exhibits in the mill museum, create publications, and do preservation projects on the Old Mill itself, such as fire protection, painting, and roof restoration.
