Heritage Carousel Capital Campaign

Thanks for Your Help!





The Heritage Carousel and the Des Moines Carousel Foundation is thrilled to report that we successfully completed our capital fundraising campaign and improvement projects!  Thanks to the generous support of our Carousel community, we raised the funds to complete all of the projects on the Carousel and make it safe and beautiful for the next generation of riders.  With your support, we:

1. Completed painting of the roof with a certified painter

2. Replaced and painted the soffits

New Soffit

3. Completed a new cabinet and operator stand

4. Repaired and painted the fence surrounding the Carousel


5. Completed hand painting touch ups of the animals

By supporting this campaign, you have allowed us to make the necessary improvements while still keeping the cost of a child’s ride at just 50 cents. Thank you, again, to all of our donors.

To donate, send your check to Heritage Carousel Capital Campaign, PO Box 8352, Des Moines, IA 50301-8352 or donate online.
