Save the Moravian

Help Gloucester County Historical Society preserve the Moravian Church at Oldman's Creek! 

We've begun work on the restoration and preservation of the Moravian Church but we need our dollars to go farther - any donation helps us match our grants and apply for more funding. 

Help us reach our fundraising goal on our first leg towards making the Moravian Church a heritage tourism destination with fun things to do on-site all year round. From weddings to wine tastings and from history lectures to festivals we'll be open to the public as a multi-use property in the heart of Woolwich Township. 

All donations from this campaign will go to ensure the continuance of the Van Meter Trust created for the specific purpose of saving and maintaining the Moravian Church property so that it may be enjoyed by all. 

Thanks for your support! If you'd like more info on the project or a timeline, please feel free to email us. For more information on GCHS, visit our website at   www.gchsnj.org.

GCHS' goal is to preserve and share the history of Gloucester County. We are a privately funded non-profit 501(c)3. All donations are deductible within the full extent of the law. 

If you or your company are interested in donating time, materials, or labor to become part of our project, here's a short "wish list:"
- Grounds-keeping/landscaping
- Design and installation of pathways/pavements
- Design and installation of "outhouse" facilities
- Storage unit
- Fencing

We also accept donations in person via cash, check, or credit card during our normal operating hours.

BIG NEWS!! We are so thankful to have found our first corporate sponsor! Kennedy Investment Group (196 Delaware Ave., West Deptford) shares our dedication to preserving and sharing the heritage of South Jersey so they've donated our next grant match of $15,000!

You won't see this update on our GoFundMe total but we wanted you to share this exciting development with you. (Plus, it's proof that we love off-line donations, too!)

So what does this mean for our current campaign? It means we forge on! Our goal was modest from the start given our extensive work-list, so every penny of your donation is still important to the physical work on the preservation. We continue to seek corporate sponsors and individual donors so please keep sharing our project!

It seems like a good time to mention that all of the general grant writing, organization, and administration for this project is done on a volunteer basis so every penny of every donation directly pays for the preservation work.

We're looking forward to beginning work on our Preservation and Archaeological plans in 2019. Be sure to keep an eye out for updates so you won't miss joining us for some hands-on exploring in the spring!
