About the Campaign

Oglebay Institute’s $4.4 million Capital Campaign seeks to address critical priorities throughout the organization including roof replacement and structural preservation at the Stifel Fine Arts Center & Towngate Theatre, visitor experiences, and endowment growth.

Together, these investments will ensure that our community can continue to discover, explore, and create together through shared experiences in visual and performing arts, dance, history, and nature. Your support, whether unrestricted or designated, is essential to the successful completion of these projects and OI’s continued engagement of the people of the Upper Ohio Valley and beyond.
