Give to save the places that matter!
Amidst all of the fear and uncertainty in our world today, we wanted to reach out to you to share some good news—news about all that we accomplished as a preservation community in 2019.
We’re proud to debut the 2019 Washington Trust Annual Report, which details our activities throughout 2019, from major public policy successes at the state and federal levels, to new additions to our Most Endangered Places list, to developments in our Washington Main Street network, and more.
This Annual Report demonstrates what can be accomplished when the preservation community comes together in defense of the Places That Matter. And while COVID-19 has changed the playing field to some extent, we’re more certain than ever that our community is powerful, resilient, and united.
We see it in the Main Street staff and volunteers working to support their small businesses in towns and cities across the state so they can weather this crisis. We see it in our partners and fellow nonprofits rallying to provide their constituents with resources, digital events, and encouragement. We see it in the number of members and donors who have stepped up to confirm their commitment to the Washington Trust as an organization.
We hope that you will take a moment to peruse our 2019 Annual Report and to celebrate those wins with us. If you’re heartened by what you see, if it renews in you the passion for preservation that informs our work every day, consider a donation to the Washington Trust. We’re here fighting for the places that matter, so that during this time of uncertainty and after it comes to an end, our historic and cultural spaces are there for our communities.
