This Thanksgiving, We're Thankful for Your Help in Saving Places!

  • By: National Trust for Historic Preservation

National Trust staffer Priya Chhaya said it beautifully last week: This year, we at the National Trust are thankful for the people of preservation.

As you just saw in the video above, your support has enabled us to accomplish great things this past year. From Los Angeles’ Terminal Island to Charleston’s historic waterfront, we have made a tangible difference across the country for the places we love.

We're also thankful for an unprecedented $10 million challenge grant from longtime preservationist Robert W. Wilson. As one of the largest gifts ever made to the National Trust, this extraordinary leadership contribution will have an enormous impact on the ground to save the inspiring sites that tell America’s story.

In the coming weeks we'll talk more about our vision for 2014, but we didn't want to let this day of gratitude pass without acknowledging your crucial role in saving places. Please accept our deepest thanks, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
