When you donate to Preservation Maryland, you are donating to the heart of Maryland’s historic communities. Each year deserving community organizations are turned down for grant funds because of a lack of grant funds. Your gift can make the difference between – lost and saved.

 

State Heritage Fund Grant with Maryland Historical Trust

  • In 2020, our statewide Heritage Fund grant program distributed $96,100 in grants that leveraged $702,631 in total project costs.
  • We received 68 Heritage Fund grant applications and $659,669.96 in grant requests. If we were able to fund all projects, the much-needed investment would be nearly 3 Million dollars! ($2,720,250.57 to be exact). 
  • Preservation Maryland has administered the Heritage Fund program since 1997 and supported 430 projects in every corner of the state.
  • The 1.4 million in direct investment from the Heritage Fund program has gone on to leverage over $20million in public and private investment in our state’s history.

  • We received 39 applications with $348,200 in grant requests demonstrating a great need for continued funding for historic Baltimore City.
