We were able to accomplish things last year like the annual 4th of July Celebration, the summertime Music in the Park series, the city’s 75 anniversary Gala, and the Neighborhood Ice Cream Social thanks to you.
The Foundation is excited about plans the city has proposed for economic development, public art, watershed initiatives and bike and pedestrian enhancements. Our community’s future has never looked brighter, and many longtime and new homeowners to the city would agree.
This anniversary offers us a challenge to help support these initiatives into the future. Our goal is to raise $75,000 through our Forward 75 campaign. This special campaign will support many of city’s goals, and that our investment into the community is meaningful for activities and events you enjoy.
To date, $20,000 has been pledged by lead donors such as: the Belin Family and their Iowa Arts and Education Foundation; Pat Iles and her family; Don Steele; and Ben Swartz who are challenging you to join the campaign. We rely on your annual contributions to fund Music in the Park, 4th of July bands, and neighborhood ice cream socials, but please consider giving to the special gift Forward 75 campaign. Letters with more information will be sent soon.
We’re making it easier than ever to make a gift. Using this website you can make a gift online by clicking the link “giving” to donate through our PayPal account.
As we prepare of 2017 and look to celebrate 75 years as The City in the Heart of it All, we ask for your support with a gift of $1,000, $500, 250, $100, or $50. Your gift will stay local and help us to plan for another great year here in Windsor Heights!
