You are invited to celebrate these memories with your Heritage Circle donation where you can be sure that your donation will have a lasting impact in the creation of memories in your community and many others. Your donation supports communities across Missouri and celebrates the importance of community culture, the value of local history, and embraces traditions that make each community irreplaceable.


In the midst of the strangeness that we are all encompassed in, here at Missouri Main Street Connection (MMSC), we want to take time to slow down and show our gratitude for our friends. This year has been so unusual and unfamiliar, but yet we have so much to celebrate!
Thank you for the work you do to ensure the continuation of Main Street in Missouri and to ensure our historic downtowns are vibrant places now and in the future.
We have been fortunate to enjoy the continued support of so many of you. We could not carry on our mission without the dedication and contributions from you. Our support has enabled many downtowns to weather the pandemic storm and not only survive, but thrive during this time of uncertainty.
As you ponder your priorities on this Giving Tuesday, we hope you will consider a gift to MMSC. Our work helps communities save their unique historic downtowns for generations to come and we want you to participate with us as we embrace our passion together.
We appreciate your support in any amount you can give. Please choose the frequency of your donation to MMSC today by clicking on one of the buttons below. Together we can help communities save their unique historic downtowns for generations to come.
