The Highland Park Improvement Club (HPIC) has been a resource for the Highland Park and Riverview neighborhoods for over 100 years. When times are good, it is a gathering place for music, dance, food, and fun. When times are hard, it is a place of mutual aid and support. And during all times, it is the heart of the community – a place for connection and service.

Our neighborhood-owned building was tragically burned by a fire June 25th of 2021. Help us rebuild the heart of the community with an improved performing arts and multipurpose spaces to foster connection, learning, and support for generations to come.

How you can help: Give once or give monthly. Host a party for us to raise funds! No amount is too small but the more we can raise right away to get us to our goal, the sooner we can get started on the demolition and construction. We would like to break ground in late 2022/early 2023.  

Thank you so much for supporting the Highland Park Improvement Club. We are a community powered organization excited for what the future holds.

Let’s RESET and bring back our neighborhood gathering place!
