In the history of every great nonprofit, there comes a time when vision, leadership, community, and generosity come together to transform an organization. We’re embarking on the most ambitious growth initiative in our history, the 5-Year ReConnect.
It all started this past year, as we achieved our greatest challenge yet: becoming a fully independent nonprofit. The growth continued, as we purchased the 1865 Frisby House, on the corner of Poplar and Main.
The opportunity to protect this property launched us into a much-needed transformation, the 5-Year ReConnect. The 5-Year ReConnect is our direction to become more outwardly focused, evolving our ability to offer different experiences that connect people to The Tower Heritage Center and Washington County’s rich heritage.
The 5-Year ReConnect is…
- Our most ambitious growth initiative in our history
- About evolving our ability to offer different experiences that build meaningful relationships across generations
- A catalyst to enrich the mission and vision of The Tower Heritage Center, supporting the long-term sustainability of the organization
- An opportunity for us to reconnect with the community through our shared heritage
In our digital world, we’re connected everywhere – yet disconnected from how history defines us.
In the next five years, we’ll be venturing through these campaign focuses:
1865 Frisby House – Welcome Center & Intimate Program Space
