Why Give?

The Cleveland International Hall of Fame is entirely dependent donations in order for its continued existence. We believe our goal is unique and uniquely Cleveland, one of the most diverse cities in America. Diversity needs to be celebrated and embraced. So much can be learned from cultures other than our own and by recognizing these cultural differences we can begin to foster an atmosphere of understanding. Cleveland is a city built on immigrants and to deny that heritage is to deny the very nature of the city itself. By recognizing the exceptional members of the immigrant communities that constitute Cleveland we, in effect, recognize the exceptional nature of the city itself.

Diversity isn’t tri-chromatic; there are many facets to every single one of us, informed by our culture, that can’t be reduced to a simple color. The International Hall of Fame is a direct offshoot of this idea. We want to spread this idea throughout the Cleveland community at large, and we believe that a physical location for the Hall of Fame will make great strides towards this goal. Your donations help us inch closer and closer towards that goal.
