Rebirth of a City - Downtown Connellsville
Help make a difference


As we come to the end of the 8th year of Downtown Connellsville, an initiative of the Fayette County Cultural Trust, the Steering Committee would like to take this opportunity to update you on the work that was completed in the past 8 years and the plans for the next four years of the program.  We hope that you will support these efforts with a pledge and contribution towards the program.  For every $1.00 that was pledged in the past we have been able to leverage about $5.00.

During the next year, the Downtown Connellsville initiative proposes to continue offering sign and facade matching funds to downtown building and business owners, continue the beautification program, organize and host community festivals (Mum Festival September 8, 2018 as well as the Summer Farmer's Market (begins June 30, 2018).  We will continue to partner with Seton Hill University and other institutions of higher learning to offer business planning and development classes to promote entrepreneurship in the community.

We ask that you help us continue our revitalization efforts by making a donation to support Downtown Connellsville's "Rebirth of a City".  We hope we can count on your support.
