Thanks to your support and passion for French patrimoine, French Heritage Society was able to give over $500,000 in restoration grants in 2014 for significant projects that would not have been possible without you.
With your support, we were able to further our mission to preserve the French architectural heritage and to transmit and safeguard the savoir-faire, knowledge and love of heritage through transatlantic educational programs. In concert with our vital restoration work, in 2014 we were able to support 30 students who, in furthering their experience in the field of heritage preservation, are also reinforcing the friendship that exists between our two countries.
Now, more than ever we are counting on your support in order to continue the work of preserving historical treasures and the long standing bonds between the United States and France.
Please give to our Annual Fund. It will make a difference.
French Heritage Society awards $530,000 in Grants
This April, in Dallas, we were extremely pleased to vote for 10 Chapter grants for a total pledge of $171,500 – bringing our total awarded for the year to $530,000. Each chapter, based on its estimate of monies raised through chapter activities, votes to pledge a certain amount toward a restoration. Each French Heritage Society grant must be matched.
