Who is joining in Preservation50 activities? Federal, state, and local government agencies, American Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations, national and statewide preservation organizations, charitable foundations, private businesses of all types and sizes, and many Americans who are committed to protecting and preserving historic treasures.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation identifies 50,000 current preservation leaders in the United States. They also find 15 million more Americans working to preserve important places, but who may not yet feel connected to a larger movement. We hope to engage many of those Americans in Preservation50.

The following organizations have joined the Preservation50 Coalition as Official Partners. Below the logos are current invitees to partnership.
