2021 Sponsorship Opportunities

Attention Community Members: We are now accepting sponsorships to help support our upcoming spring sports programming. Please see the information below about how you can become involved. The sponsorship form to submit back to us is attached at the bottom of this post. Thank you in advance for your support.

Dear Sponsor,

Make Wellston Beautiful, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was formed to improve and maintain various properties owned by the City of Wellston.  We are an organization of volunteers who share a common interest in seeing our community and our children thrive.  2020 was our sixth year of operating the youth recreational programs in the city.  Unfortunately, we had to cancel all our normal programming, except for junior high soccer, due to the coronavirus.  We know 2020 was a tough year on everyone and we’re looking forward to doing our part in helping everyone return to a sense of normalcy in 2021.  We are making plans to safely move forward with our normal youth recreational activities in 2021.

We have plans for continued growth and improvements in 2021, including the installation of lights on the Ceil Geitz field.  We are also working with the Ohio DNR on a project planned to start in the fall of 2021 that will make our facility one of the best in Ohio.  We work to keep player registration fees low and supplement the operating expenses of our programs with sponsorships and donations from community businesses and individuals.  All contributions are tax deductible.  Our Federal Identification Number is 46-2346850.  Listed below are details on several different sponsorship options that you may choose from to support the youth of our community.

We also cordially invite you to attend our opening day ceremonies on May 1st to see all the improvements in our recreational programs and facilities.  We hope you will help support the youth of our community by volunteering your time or making a financial contribution.  Thanks in advance for your support.

Contribute to the WHS Art Club Murals Project

The Wellston High School Art Club, in collaboration with Make Wellston Beautiful, will be painting an array of murals in Wellston. These community murals will not only benefit the art club by allowing students to earn service hours and display their artistic abilities, but also benefits the community because the new artwork has the potential to bring in tourists and improve the aesthetics of Wellston, while improving mental health of both the artists and the surrounding community members.

Make Wellston Beautiful is excited to be teaming up with the new Wellston High School Art Club to help raise funds for students to paint murals in Wellston. Thanks to generous donors and the strong support of our community, the mural project met its $1,500 fundraising goal through the Cause Connector of the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio.

However, there is still room for you to make a mark on Wellston’s upcoming art projects!

If you would still like to contribute to the project and Make Wellston Beautiful, donations may be mailed to:
