Support the Heineken Cities Project

Join the National Trust for Historic Preservation, in collaboration with Heineken USA and the Friends of the Rail Park, as we pitch in to help transform three miles of forgotten railroad tracks into a one-of-a-kind public space.
So far, the construction team has begun critical repairs to the bridge structures. They’ve also removed the old soil that was tainted by years of engines running over the tracks and replaced it with clean, healthy earth. Now, the Friends of the Rail Park needs your support to help finish the work that makes a great park flourish—beautiful trees, inviting benches, and winding pathways. They even have plans to restore an abandoned Reading Railroad dining car into a welcome center for the entire park.

Support the Indiegogo Campaign

With your generous backing, we’ll make sure the Rail Park gets off to a strong start. Plus, when you contribute to our campaign, you’ll have the chance to claim some awesome perks in return, including two tickets to the “Bruno Mars: 24K Magic World Tour,” cool T-shirts, and even an exclusive illustration of the Rail Park in all its glory.*

About The Projects

What is the National Trust for Historic Preservation?

The National Trust for Historic Preservation, a privately funded nonprofit organization, works to save America’s historic places. We are the cause that inspires Americans to save the places where history happened. The cause that connects us to our diverse pasts, weaving a multi-cultural nation together. The cause that transforms communities from places where we live into places that we love. As the leading voice for preservation, we are the cause for people saving places.

Our mission is to protect significant places representing our diverse cultural experience by taking direct action and inspiring broad public support.

Where is my donation going?

More than 90% of all funds raised will support the cities’ projects and the National Trust’s ongoing work to save historic places in Philadelphia and around the country. Up to 10% will cover Indiegogo costs and processing fees, as described in Indiegogo’s Terms and Conditions.

Tell me more about the art prints. Who is the artist?

Carlo Stanga is an Italian artist based in Berlin who has received many awards for his illustrations, both in America and abroad. He works with various companies, including Nestle and the New York MTA. He champions a style that combines architecture and illustration, making him the perfect artist to design the prints for this campaign. Learn more about him here.

When will I get my perk (non-ticket)?

Perks will be delivered later this summer (July/August).

Can I visit the project site?

Sadly, no, but soon it will be a wonderful green park filled with activities for everyone to enjoy.

When will the project be complete?

Saving places takes time! But with your generous support, we hope to get the Rail Park project completed as soon as possible.

How do I get support for my project? Or can I submit a project for consideration?

We at the National Trust are always interested in hearing about what is important to you. Although we may not be able to save it immediately, you can always contact your state’s historic preservation office and see how you can get started on the road to preservation!

Is the National Trust involved in other restoration projects?

Yes! We’re the country’s leading advocate for saving historic places. As such, we’re on the ground in communities across the nation. Visit our website to explore other historic places that we are trying to save like the Philadelphia Rail Park.
