Benefits of Giving

Oglebay0042Generous financial contributions from individuals like you help provide funds necessary to operate and grow Oglebay and Wheeling Park. Friends of Oglebay are people who believe in the importance of parks as places of discovery that build community. We encourage you to make a gift to The Oglebay Foundation today.


“The parks have always been outstanding and so efficiently run. When you give a gift to the parks, you know it will go entirely toward the project for which it was meant.”

– Dr. Robert Sonneborn on his family’s long relationship with Wheeling’s parks.
