Explore Awesome Preservation Projects In Your City!
What makes a city great? Its culture, for sure—its flavor, texture, color. Its skyline and landscapes. Definitely its history.
But what brings a city’s greatness to life? That’s where its people come in—the communities that form its beating heart and breathing lungs, and the neighborhoods that turn places we live into places we love.
In 2017, Heineken and the National Trust collaborated on a crowdfunding initiative called The Cities Project, which allowed people to contribute directly to preservation projects that will make their cities even greater places to call home.
The Cities Project by Heineken helps strong communities bring special projects to life. It all started in 2016 when Heineken partnered with the National Trust to launch the “Save Your Seat” campaign at Miami Marine Stadium, our remarkable Modernist, graffiti-covered National Treasure built in 1963. The goal: kickstart this unique stadium’s restoration. The result: more than $100,000 raised, along with an outpouring of public support for the dilapidated but beloved place.
This year, the campaign expanded to ten projects stretching from New York to Honolulu. The projects raised over $350,000 for preservation. Explore them all below, and get inspired to make your city even greater!
