A Schuylkill River Greenway Association Endowment Fund was created in 2008, thanks to a generous donation by John E. Newlin Jr. and Barbara C. Newlin. We are seeking to expand this fund, ensuring that our work continues far into the future.

About the Fund

The Schuylkill River Greenway Association is the non-profit entity that manages the Schuylkill River Heritage Area. The purpose of the Schuylkill River Greenway Association Endowment Fund is to acquire assets that will be invested and reinvested to support future projects that meet the vision of the Schuylkill River Heritage Area. The Heritage Area uses conservation, education, recreation, cultural and historic preservation and tourism as tools for community revitalization and economic development. This endowment fund will ensure that we can continue this important work well into the future.
