Naming Opportunities
A variety of opportunities are available to name selected features of the Heritage Center, from the Atrium and offices to fence pillars and wagon seats in the theater. We would be happy to work with you on your special naming requests.


A goal of the capital campaign was to establish a $1 million growing endowment and within five years to reach $5 million to support the operations of the Heritage Center.  One of the ways donors can help grow the endowment is to remember the Heritage Center in their wills.  The endowment is administered through the Cherokee Strip Community Foundation.

Donors giving over $10,000 to the Heritage Center endowment have the opportunity to have a named fund through the Cherokee Strip Community Foundation. The named fund will be listed in the Foundation’s publications.  We will be happy to work with you or your financial advisor to establish your named fund.
