The National Trust for Historic Preservation has led the movement to save historic places in America for more than 70 years. The programmatic work of the National Trust focuses on four key priorities—saving America’s historic sites; telling the full American story; building stronger communities; and investing in preservation’s future. This valuable work is funded by passionate supporters that believe in the National Trust’s mission to save our past and enrich our future. Governed by a Board of Trustees comprised of nationally recognized volunteer leaders from the fields of business, finance, marketing, urban planning, and preservation, the work of the National Trust is driven by five guiding values: diversity and inclusion, collaboration, innovation, integrity, and making a difference.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation is a privately funded, non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C. that was founded in 1949 by a congressional charter to support the preservation of historic buildings, sites, and heritage. The National Trust ensures that all Americans see their history in its historic places. In telling the full story of America, the contributions of women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, and all that have shaped this nation are brought to light. The National Trust works within communities nationwide to help residents understand the history of their community, and to demonstrate how preservation and reuse of existing properties can create economic development. Through a powerful suite of funding, networks, research, and expertise, the National Trust's passion is building a community of champions to advocate successfully for a shared past and ensure the future of the preservation movement. The National Trust champions historic tax credits; provides funding for research into the economic, environmental, and community benefits of saving historic places; and brings experts in preservation together with community historians to make lasting change.
