Preserve Campaign

The Preserve Campaign – Preserving History, Serving Community

September 16, 2021 through October 14, 2021

There are #StrengthInNeighbors and together we can build strong, healthy communities and dignified housing through the preservation of blighted historic properties. Lend your support to Restoration Housing’s Preserve Campaign and be a part of the solution. All gifts will be matched up to $8,000 and for every $50 you donate your name will be entered to win a prize package valued at $350!

The campaign includes a ticketed luncheon on September 16, 2021 as well as a month-long video series available through all online platforms. This is Restoration Housing’s main fundraising event of the year, providing necessary financial support and exposure to fulfill our mission.
