Update: Tampa Union Station Endowment Growing, Needs More Donations

Update on Contributions to Tampa Union Station Preservation Fund


My thanks go to all of you who have contributed thus far to the Tampa Union Station Preservation Fund, the endowment fund for the ongoing restoration of Tampa Union Station at the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay.


To date, nearly $25,000 has been raised through tax-deductible donations to the Fund.


We are on our way to our goal! Once $37,500 in contributions have been made, the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay will award a $12,500 matching grant to the Fund.


This will, of course, establish a permanent $50,000 endowment for the perpetual care of one of Florida’s railroad landmarks, Tampa Union Station.


Please join me and other passenger rail advocates in this important cause by making a personal commitment to the Fund. And please tell others about it, as well!


More details and a contribution form are available at the Friends of Tampa Union Station website:
