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.
The National Trust for Historic Preservation values, respects, and
supports the diverse views and contributions of its colleagues and
