Why donate to the Allentown Association?

Can you imagine Allentown without half of the buildings on Main St. between Allen and Virginia, or without every house on the east side of Irving St.? What about an expressway where Edward, Tupper and Virginia Streets currently are? Or having lost the Allendale Theater (Theater of Youth), the Birge Mansion on Symphony Circle or the Coit House, the oldest house in the City of Buffalo? The preservation work of the Allentown Association began in 1960 and continues today. Our board members and volunteers host monthly litter mobs to clean the neighborhood, First Fridays showcasing local artists and galleries, bringing hundreds and sometimes thousands of visitors to our neighborhood, and events like the annual Spring Dinner, Fall Festival and the extremely popular Allen West Festival.

Your generosity not only allows the Association to expand its accessibility, it assures the preservation, restoration, and maintenance of a historic house as a community asset for future generations.  The Allentown Association, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization and your donation is fully tax deductible as allowable by law.
