As a non-profit organization, the One City Historical Foundation depends on contributions from donors like you. Your support also allows us to share our enriching programs and events with our community. In order to have programs inside the house, it has to be able to accommodate people. With that in mind, the foundation’s first goal is to rebuild the front porch, which was torn off by a previous owner, c. 2000.
The porch restoration is important for several reasons:
The foundation has pledged to raise the necessary funds for the porch materials. The city of Newport News has engaged an architect to develop construction documents to determine costs. It is estimated the materials will run $50,000.
We encourage you to contribute to the fund and to ask your friends and family to sponsor a deck board, a spindle, a column or whatever fits your pocketbook.
Your dollars are integral to our success, and we thank you for your support. The foundation is a 501 (c)(3) organization. Contributions are tax exempt to the fullest extent allowed by law.
