Developing Our Preservation Projects
A strategic process for identifying and addressing the conservation needs of cultural properties
Each year, the Office of Cultural Heritage conducts two to three Historic Structure Reports and five to ten historical research projects on significant properties. In addition, staff visits multiple posts a year to assess the condition of the buildings and heritage collections. Projects are then identified from the recommendations made in the reports and assessments.
We have initially identified forty-one projects, spread throughout all regions of the world. They range in cost from $25,000 to $4,100,000 and could last from six months to three years from the time a donation is made to project completion. Each spring, the Office of Cultural Heritage meets with the Fund to Conserve’s board of directors to determine any new endeavors to be added to the list of projects for which the organization will seek funding.
