Heinz Memorial Chapel is a non-sectarian chapel given by the H.J. Heinz family to the University of Pittsburgh.

The Heinz Chapel Building Fund

At the chapel’s dedication in 1938, Howard Heinz spoke for his family when he said that the chapel was “dedicated to culture, an understanding response to beauty, and religious worship.”

Annually, more than 100,000 visitors participate in its religious services, weddings, concerts, classes, memorial services, celebrations, and guided tours.

Although the chapel undergoes routine maintenance, its priceless features sometimes require more specialized care. Through donations to the Heinz Chapel Building Fund, administrators hope to embark on several projects, including preservation of the flèche, pews, roof, pipe organ, and the famous Charles J. Connick stained-glass windows. By addressing the projects now, we can be certain that the masterpiece will endure for many more decades.
