Giving Tuesday 2021 – Save a Grave

Help preserve history + engage the next generation of historic preservationists

This Giving Tuesday Preservation Maryland is excited to announce a new program coming Spring 2022. With your help, we will also be able to provide young adults with the supplies needed for historic cemetery preservation.

DONATE TO SAVE A GRAVE

Through our planned programming made possible by a grant from the Rural Maryland Council, groups will be trained by preservation experts while they learn about the historical significance, proper maintenance, and importance of cemetery preservation – and will be supported in the continuation of this work at 25 sites across the state well into the future. We are partnering with Atlas Preservation to purchase supplies at a 20% discount. Your donation will go toward specialty supplies, including D/2 Biological Solution, grab & go sprayer/misters, short handle scrub brushes, nylon detail brushes, tile & grout brushes, plastic scrapers, and kneeling pads. For $500 you can fund an entire kit for eight people for one of our 25 planned sites.


We are starting early this year & asking for supporters to donate so we can purchase tools for preservation workshops and to help trained groups continue to maintain the spaces. With your support, we can engage, train, mobilize, and equip young adults across the state to become a new generation of preservationists!

 

Additionally, our friends at Route One Apparel are offering a $10 voucher for every $50 spent with Preservation Maryland for Giving Tuesday – another great reason to give!

Please note: the amount of your donation that exceeds $10 is tax-deductible in accordance with the law due to the inclusion of the Route One Voucher. Financial information is available on our website or can be obtained by contacting Preservation Maryland. Documents and information under the Maryland Charitable Solicitations Act are available for the cost of copying and postage from the Office of the Secretary of State, Statehouse, Annapolis, Md. 21401.
