Penn Dixie Funding Boosted

By Jim Eiseman, Chair, Board of Directors

We are very pleased to announce to that Erie County has approved their budget with the full amount of funding, $92,920, requested by Penn Dixie during the Cultural Application Process to help fund operations in 2018.

In addition to being awarded this amount for operations, Erie County approved an additional $2,000 to be put towards our fund for a building on site. On behalf of the organization I would like to thank County Executive Mark Poloncarz, Legislator Lynne Dixon, and the entire County Legislature for their support of the Penn Dixie and the value that cultural organizations bring to the region.

Legislator Lynne Dixon adds “I am pleased that Erie County was once again able to support Penn Dixie in the budget and thank my colleagues in the Legislature for supporting my request to increase 2018 funding. This site draws visitors from around the world and I couldn’t be more proud of the work being done there. Supporting Penn Dixie at the county level helps ensure it will remain open and continue to educate the thousands of visitors it has each year.”

  1. Congrats to Penn Dixie. It’s most rewarding to see that Erie County legislators recognize the educational and scientific value of Penn Dixie by continuing their financial support. We’ll see you again this May.
