Preservation is Local
The Valerie Sivinski Fund is an annual grant program that provides grants up to $2,000 to organizations and community groups engaged in historic preservation around our state. Awards are given in the name of Valerie Sivinski, a dedicated preservationist who was killed while performing preservation-related work. Valerie was a longtime and beloved Board Member of the Washington Trust and served as president in the early 1990s.
The mission of the program is to provide small, yet meaningful, grants to bricks and mortar preservation projects around the state. The grant program truly embodies the mission of the Washington Trust to help make local preservation possible by supporting projects at the community level.
