Your Gift Enables PHLF to Help More Historic Religious Properties
More funds are needed to fulfill the funding requests PHLF has received through its Historic Religious Properties (HRP) Program from 25 congregations in Allegheny County who hope to undertake important preservation work this year. Proposed work includes restoring stained glass; repairing masonry, stone work, and roofs; and replacing gutters.
Your contribution will enable PHLF to award more matching grants to architecturally significant places of worship that serve their communities every day throughout the year. Please contribute by clicking here or mail a check, payable to PHLF and referenced HRP, to Mary Lu Denny, PHLF, 100 W. Station Square Drive, Suite 450, Pittsburgh, PA 15219. We thank you!
PHLF’s Historic Religious Properties Committee, chaired by Trustee George Dorman, will meet early in the new year to review the grant applications and approve a number of matching grants of between $3,000 and $10,000 to help fund critical exterior improvements. PHLF also awards technical assistance grants to help historic religious properties assess and prioritize building maintenance and restoration needs.
PHLF’s matching grant program is the only place most historic religious properties can turn to for help in making critical exterior repairs to their buildings. By encouraging careful, informed, and economical stewardship, PHLF helps ensure that these architecturally significant places of worship will be taken care of for future generations. We need your help to make this program a real success for the historic religious properties that have applied to PHLF for help. Thank you.
