Partners in Preservation
I’s the FINAL WEEK of Partners in Preservation DC. This is your last chance to have your voice heard on how American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation will give out up to $1M in grants to 24 historic sites in the DC area. Popular voting is one factor in how the grants will be awarded. Right now Mount Vernon, National Cathedral and Sixth and I Synagogue are in the lead, but there’s still time for small sites like All Souls, LAMB @ Military Road School and the Athenaeum.
While the top vote getter is guaranteed to receive their full grant money requested, a special advisory committee will determine how the rest of the $1m will be allocated. Points will be one of the factors they look at, so keep voting DAILY at www.partnersinpreservation.com
In addition to supporting the sites, you also help yourself each time you vote. Marriott is giving away free three night stays in (almost) ANY of their hotels around the world to ten lucky voters. The more you vote, the better your chances. More details here: https://www.preservedmv.com/getinvolved
