The Pennsylvania Heritage Foundation invites you to support the important work conducted every day by curators, archivists, archaeologists, architects, and volunteers to protect and preserve Pennsylvania’s history with a donation this #GivingTuesday.


Pennsylvania is known as The Keystone State due to the important role it played within the founding of the United States; not only as the middle colony of the original 13 colonies, but it also held a key position in the economic, social, and political development of the United States. Your support this #GivingTuesday allows the Pennsylvania Heritage Foundation to fund efforts by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission in protecting the treasures and memories of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania so vital to the story of our nation.


Your contribution will…


  • assist in creating educational programs for children to learn about the contributions of Pennsylvanians and Pennsylvania businesses to the nation
  • assist in creating new exhibits showcasing important artifacts and providing context explaining not only what the artifact is, but how it contributed to Pennsylvania, the United States, and potentially the world
  • conserving the artifacts, documents, and buildings that are so crucial to understanding the history of Pennsylvania and its people.


Your support is greatly appreciated by all of us at the Pennsylvania Heritage Foundation and the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission! Thank you for dedication and commitment to preserving Pennsylvania history for generations to come.
