Capital Improvement Fund Campaign


PRESERVE OUR HERITAGE…………..How can you help?????

Only someone who honors the traditions of his ancestors is worthy to be their descendant.


Our Donauschwaben family at Lenau Park is strong with the involvement of multi-generational families and the many clubs and events we have available.  We have every reason to be filled with joy and pride when witnessing our grounds and the beautiful facilities we have built.  Lenau Park is alive and busy and our facilities are well used.

Like our homes and properties, years of use necessitate repairs and maintenance. Our Lenau Park has entered this age. We are faced with numerous and costly repairs after 29+ years of operation.

The Board of Trustees of Donauschwaben’ s German-American Cultural Center is continuing its Capital Improvements Fund appeal to all of our members and umbrella groups. We are asking everyone that can financially help to please consider a donation. We are a 501(c)(3) organization so all donations are tax deductible in accordance with IRS regulations.

We are blessed to have a Wednesday crew and many volunteers who take care of our regular maintenance. Our Sommer Oktoberfest and Lenten Fish Frys are wonderful fundraising events and we thank our many volunteers who make them possible.  The monies from these, however, will be inadequate to cover all the capital expenses and major repairs that we will be facing in the coming years.

In addition, we pay over $60,000 in real estate taxes every year, an expense our founders could not foresee.  A report on Capital Expenditures and related fundraising will be presented at our Annual Meeting in March.  Thank you to all that have contributed in the past and continue to contribute.  Your donations have in part paid for some of our critical repairs and the maintenance of our club.

At this time, we ask that you please consider making a donation to our Capital Improvement Fund.  Your donation will help to maintain our facilities and grounds so that our current and future generations will have a Donauschwaben home at which they can gather with family and friends for many years to come.  

Donations can be made by money order or personal check, as well as through our website by using PayPal or a credit card by pressing the DONATE button located on the homepage at, or by calling our office at 440-235-2646.

Thank you for your continued patronage and support.
