Preservation Pennsylvania is the Commonwealth's only private statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people protect and preserve the historic places that matter to them.
Preservation Pennsylvania was established by the Commonwealth's General Assembly in 1982 as the Preservation Fund of Pennsylvania, a statewide revolving fund to assist in the acquisition and rehabilitation of historic properties. Since then, Preservation Pennsylvania has grown into its role as a private, nonprofit membership organization with a statewide mission to protect and preserve Pennsylvania's irreplaceable historic places.
We assist individuals, organizations, corporations, and governmental agencies from across the Commonwealth (and sometimes the nation) in their own preservation-related efforts, through a dynamic scope of activities and services. Whether as a leader, partner, or advisor, Preservation Pennsylvania works to secure the future of the past through educational outreach workshops and events, legislative advocacy, advisory and technical assistance in the field, and other special initiatives.
We look forward to assisting you with your own preservation-related projects. Please explore the links on this page to discover the many ways we can help.
Finally, please consider assisting us! As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Preservation Pennsylvania is funded through the generosity of individuals, corporations, members and donors. Your gift will ensure that we can continue to save history all across the Commonwealth. You may join us as a member and make a tax-deductible donation through this site by clicking the Support Us!
