I really appreciate the work PHLF does to maintain historical buildings in our city. These projects touch so many lives and make our city a much better place.

One of the most direct ways that PHLF helps maintain architectural landmarks throughout Allegheny County is by continuing its Historic Religious Properties (HRP) program, supported each year by generous donations from its members and friends.

“We improve the quality of life for people as we help renew the institutions they value,” said David Vater, Chair of PHLF’s HRP Committee. Since 1997, PHLF has awarded 247 matching grants totaling more than one million dollars to help restore key historic religious properties in Allegheny County and, in the process, has created community pride and encouraged renewal.

“The contributions we receive in support of our HRP program, now through December 31, will make it possible for us to offer another cycle of matching grants and technical assistance in 2015,” said HRP Committee Vice-Chair Kathy Testoni. “Since PHLF underwrites the staff and operating costs of the HRP program, 100% of each donation is awarded in the form of matching grants to directly fund restoration work.”

“This is PHLF’s 50th anniversary year,” noted Mr. Vater. “I encourage people to give generously, in thanks for all that PHLF has done to improve the quality of life for people in this region.”
