Sustaining Our Work

Help us build a vibrant future.

If you love our canal heritage and the distinctive canal communities, engineering marvels, waterways and trails that make the Erie Canalway extraordinary, join us in building a vibrant future along the waterway.

The Erie Canalway Heritage Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that works hand-in-hand with the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor Commission. Your contribution to the Heritage Fund supports our efforts to preserve and share our extraordinary canal heritage. It helps us continue to work with partners to promote the Canalway Corridor as a world-class tourism destination. And it leverages additional financial support to advance the entire region.

Thank you for your support!
