Historic preservation is a long-term commitment requiring far-sighted leadership. Preservation50 seeks to identify, energize, enlist, and prepare emerging leaders from among the 15 million Americans who are involved in preservation in their daily lives and hunger for the tools to increase their impact.


Online Leadership Development Platform

Working with world-class experts in preservation, education, and technology, Preservation50 aims to design a dynamic online leadership development platform suited to a diverse and entrepreneurial audience, to include the latest teaching, collaborating, volunteering, and networking content and tools.

Volunteer Matchmaking

Preservation50 is working with the Points of Light Foundation’s A Billion + Change Initiative to develop and test strategies for connecting high-value talents of employees of American corporations with high-impact pro bono projects that build the capacity of preservation organizations and agencies to better meet their mission.
