To set us up to do great work in 2021, we set out with a goal to raise $20,000 in 2020 year-end contributions. Thanks to YOUR incredible support, the backing of our amazing Board of Directors, and matching gifts from our generous friends Barbara Fuldner and David Uihlein, we are proud to report that we met and exceeded our goal and have raised over $21,000 in gifts and pledges!
It's clear that there is strong support for preservation advocacy in our city. We are so grateful to everyone who contributed to this campaign, which will allow us to expand programming, empower local neighborhoods, and develop new partnerships in our effort to make sure the places and stories that give our city meaning are valued and protected.
