Capital Campaign

Get Involved

Pinellas Community Foundation - logoThe Woodson and Pinellas Community Foundation have joined forces to raise $27 million through a capital campaign for a new and expanded museum.

The existing museum operates in the former community center of Jordan Park, the site of one of our nation’s first African American developed public housing communities. As a result of The Woodson’s growth and popularity, the museum has exceeded the use of its current single-story, 4,000-square-foot facility.

The vision for the new 30,000-square-foot edifice, designed by renowned Black-owned Huff + Gooden Architects in partnership with Wannemacher Jensen Architects, is the result of broad community discussions.

Brick Program

On May 3, 2008, the Legacy Garden was created at the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum in St. Petersburg. “Pave the Way” is a brick campaign dedicated to supporting the Legacy Garden and the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum. Bricks with your name and/or company will be engraved and placed into the pathway throughout the garden. You may also purchase a brick in memory or honor of a loved one.

The Leadership Class of 2008 raised more than $40,000 in donations to provide 13,000 brick pavers, 1,200 plants, sod, mulch, irrigation and fencing. The garden now offers a beautiful outdoor space that serves as a centerpiece for the Jordan Park neighborhood.

With more than 400 bricks sponsored, a stroll along the meandering pathways includes a search for the names for family and friends. Bricks are available for “Pave-the-Way” sponsorships by calling the museum at 727-323-1104.
