Community Partnerships

Become a Community Partner!

With your loyal friendship and proud support, OH WOW! has become an anchor in Downtown Youngstown and a destination in Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania, successfully meeting the EDUtainment (=education+entertainment) needs of children and their families since our 2011 opening.

We invite you to invest in 2019 through a new and improved Community Partnership Program that will give you direct access to OH WOW!’s audience with wide recognition through internal and external signage and traditional and social media markets!  Community Partners can also customize their benefit package to include alternative employee perks and volunteer opportunities.  Your support is a win-win for ALL!  

We can help you identify a gift that fits your goals.  Call Suzanne Barbati, President & Executive Director at 330-207-0437 today to learn more.

We sincerely apologize for any omissions or errors in our list of Community Partners and ask that you contact Suzanne Barbati, director@ohwowkids.org.
