A handful of extremely generous donors has already committed to give $155,000 to the project, if the remaining $100,000 needed can be raised by the community.  We are working tirelessly to save this piece of our shared history, but we can’t do it alone.  Any donation, no matter how small, will go a long way toward restoring the Heywood Building, preserving our past, and beautifying our community.

Donate $50 or More: “I Saved the Heywood” T-shirt

For a contribution of $25 or more, you’ll receive an invitation to the Save The Heywood Block Party, a raffle ticket, and an “I Saved The Heywood” t-shirt.  Wear it proudly, and let everyone know that you care about your community and preserving its history! (Please allow 6 weeks for delivery.)

Donate $250 or More: Original Carrara Glass Souvenir

For a contribution of $250 or more, you’ll get a ticket to the Save The Heywood Block Party, a raffle ticket, an ‘I Saved The Heywood’ T-shirt, and a piece of the original black carrara glass from the exterior of the building.  The black carrara glass around the facade is one of the most memorable features of the Heywood Building, and we have carefully removed and saved what we can.  This style of decorative glass, also called vitrolite, was discontinued in the 1950s and is now extremely rare and precious.  You can keep a coaster-sized piece of our history, inscribed with the words ‘I Saved The Heywood,’ for your very own! (Please allow 6 weeks for delivery.)
