In 2022 we have saved more, trained more, and simply accomplished more than any other year in our more than 90-year history. We need your support so we don’t lose the momentum we’ve relentlessly worked to build.

Preserving place, championing change, and growing the historic preservation trades workforce – it has been a year of continued evolution for the organization.

Although our core mission will always remain to protect Maryland’s irreplaceable heritage, you have likely noticed our work – and our reach – expanding in considerable ways. Once known largely for grant funding and advocacy efforts, we have vastly increased our programming with the national workforce development program The Campaign for Historic Trades, our statewide Historic Property Redevelopment Program, and the newly launched Revitalization Support Center.

We are big picture thinkers and our approach to preservation is not like other organizations. We are committed to the innovation that sets us apart, creating measurable impact on communities, the workforce, and the lives of current and future Marylanders.

The power of our supporters and donors cannot be overstated.  Your support makes this organization’s success possible every day of the year, and together we can save history and build strong, equitable communities.
