Since 1998, the Fund has awarded 115 projects totaling almost $110,000 in funding to local historic preservation organizations and advocates engaged in the important work of preserving Washington’s cultural heritage. And though grant awards are modest, each year recipients report back to us, noting the important role funding plays in leveraging additional contributions, providing support, and ultimately achieving project goals.


Funding for the grant program is obtained from private donations to the Trust with the goal of providing a minimum of $10,000 in grant funding per year. The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation is a statewide, tax exempt 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1976 to safeguard Washington's historic places through advocacy, education, collaboration and stewardship. Recipients of the 2015 Valerie Sivinski Washington Preserves Fund grant awards were publicly announced on December 11 at the Washington Trust’s annual Holiday Benefit held at the Stimson-Green Mansion, their landmark headquarters.
