“Annual donations from PHLF members and friends in support of our Historic Religious Properties (HRP) Program make it possible for us to continue our program of financial and technical assistance,” said Carole Malakoff, program coordinator.
Since the July E-news, thirty-four more people have contributed, bringing the total amount of funds raised in 2012 to $18,805. Our goal is to raise $75,000 to enable us to offer another round of grants in 2013. We are also working to identify $2.5 million in bequests and other planned gifts to endow this important program.
“Each grant from PHLF is matched by the congregation, making donations from our members and friends even more valuable,” said George Dorman, chair of PHLF’s HRP Committee.

PHLF is the only organization that most historic religious properties can turn to for help in making critical exterior repairs. By encouraging careful, informed, and economical stewardship, PHLF helps ensure that these architecturally significant places of worship will be taken care of for future generations.
