Building Our Future Campaign
Building Our Future
A Campaign to Enrich Education, Build Community, & Preserve History
In the Fall of 2014, Hanover Tavern Foundation launched a five-year, three part, $2 million campaign designed to address numerous interrelated areas of growth, education, and improvements at the Tavern. We are proud to announce that we have raised over $1,650,00 and we are confident, with the help of the community, we will raise the final $350,000 needed to complete the “Building Our Future” Campaign. With your help, Hanover Tavern Foundation can continue doing what it does best: MAKING HISTORY.
EXPAND YEAR ROUND SPACE FOR EDUCATION PROGRAMS AND EVENTS: Completed in the spring of 2015, the E.J. Wade Coach House provides much needed conditioned space for educational programs and community events such as weddings and corporate meetings.
ENHANCE EDUCATIONAL AND CULTURAL PROGRAMMING: The proposed educational and cultural programming consists of improved building interpretation, new Standards of Learning-based programming, outreach programs, dining entertainment, and summer camps all designed to provide a more comprehensive interpretation of the Tavern’s national importance in American, Virginia and local history.
INSTALL MUSEUM-QUALITY CONTROLS, IMPROVE HISTORIC EXHIBITS, AND CONTINUE THE PRESERVATION OF THE NATIONALLY SIGNIFICANT HANOVER TAVERN: Building repairs and enhancements include plaster repair, interior and exterior paint, new light fixtures, and furnishings for improved interpretation of the Tavern. Museum-quality improvements include installation of environment monitoring controls, an alarm system, and a backup ……………………….emergency generator.
