I’d like to express my sincere gratitude to the resilient people of our region (and beyond) for your unwavering support of the Senator John Heinz History Center and our family of museums.

Thanks to our community, History Center curators and archivists have been hard at work, preserving this historic moment and collecting materials that document your experiences for future generations.

Now more than ever, learning from our past experiences is vital to our community.

The History Center has built a robust offering of virtual learning resources and activities on our History at Home hub. We’re presenting an exciting slate of virtual programming – everything from book launches on Zoom to online genealogy workshops.

We continue to count on your support in a BIG way.

The response to the global pandemic has forced us to make difficult decisions to ensure our institution’s sustainability.

This month, you can help us weather the storm by contributing to the Heinz History Center.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support our organization. There is no act of generosity too small.

In doing so, you’re helping us teach Pittsburgh’s children about the women’s suffrage movement, add artifacts from our city’s championship teams in the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum, plan exciting family programming at Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Historic Village, open educational exhibitions at the Fort Pitt Museum, and digitize thousands of historic images and documents within the Detre Library & Archives.

You’re helping bring world-class, Smithsonian-quality exhibitions to Western Pa., like the upcoming Smithsonian’s Portraits of Pittsburgh: Works from the National Portrait Gallery exhibit featuring striking works of art that depict more than 100 Americans with Pittsburgh connections.

Most importantly, your contribution allows us to carry out our mission to preserve the past, so we can make better decisions now while planning for the future.

With your help, we can (and will) do it!
