Dear Friend,

Have you always thought of Wheeling Heritage as a federally funded nonprofit that makes revitalization investments throughout the city? While we do receive funding through the National Park Service, philanthropic contributions from individuals like you provide the margin of excellence that allows us to put so many meaningful projects into action.

But because of you and your support, Wheeling Heritage is so much more!

Your philanthropic support makes possible Show of Hands – our community-based crowdfunding program that has awarded over $80,000 to 24 small businesses owners since it was initiated in 2014.

Donations enabled us to share Wheeling’s story with over 26,000 people over the past year through Weelunk, our online storytelling platform.

We are constantly adapting to our community’s changing needs and will continue to develop important programs year after year. Philanthropy gives us the edge to do that.

Wheeling Heritage is revitalization in action.

Through large public space and historic preservation projects, as well as community-based heritage programs, Wheeling Heritage has built the foundation from which our community can thrive. Our work is essential to the positive momentum that’s happening in our city.

Your support makes the difference.

You can further advance these important initiatives and support the great work taking place in our community with a gift to Wheeling Heritage. A contribution is your opportunity to demonstrate what is important to you and to advance Wheeling’s future through your investment.

Help us preserve Wheeling’s sense of place and character and contribute to building an environment in which people and businesses can thrive – for everyone!
