A gift to the Annual Fund, which supports general operations and immediate needs, is the most comprehensive way to support the Preservation Society. Each year we rely on private contributions from friends like you to help us:
- Properly care for and present the houses and grounds
- Provide educational offerings including lectures and symposia
- Plan and develop an exciting schedule of special events
- Execute thousands of public tours
- Enrich, enlighten and inspire our community in many other ways
The Preservation Society's most critical base of support is its endowment, which provides steady income even in the face of budgetary challenges. A healthy endowment ensures that the Society can pursue first-rate educational and scholarly activities well into the future. Your contribution to the endowment is a self-renewing gift, in that the Society's current spending policy of five percent per year allows the principal to grow while generating a reliable income stream in perpetuity.
