Here's more about JAHA, and how you can support our Annual Fund.

The Johnstown Area Heritage Association (JAHA) is a non-profit organization that bases our work on Johnstown’s historic resources and sense of place – its legendary stories, historic buildings and districts, and cultural traditions. Our mission is to preserve and revitalize historic places, bring visitors and new investment into the city’s core, and build our city’s future through heritage tourism.

We have a strong track record going back to 1971 and have accomplished a great deal, but there’s still so much to do. Your support of JAHA’s Annual Fund Campaign allows JAHA to continue this important work.

Current projects that your donation helps support

  • Major exhibition and facility upgrades at the Johnstown Flood Museum.
  • A permanent exhibition at the Heritage Discovery Center about the history of the steel industry in Johnstown, from its earliest days through the present.
  • Continued programming at Peoples Natural Gas Park. This flexible venue has been a major addition to Johnstown’s vitality by attracting thousands to the City for events such as the AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival, while serving as a catalyst for new events.
  • Museum-based and online education programs presented to thousands of students annually.

FY2023 JAHA Annual Fund Donors

Through benefactors like you and our ability to bring grant and other funding to our community, JAHA has become one of the largest non-profit developers and investors in the City despite a difficult economic environment. We enhance Johnstown’s sense of place and quality of life, and build community pride.

We thank you for supporting JAHA’s important work with a gift to the Annual Fund, which will benefit Johnstown today and long into the future.
