The National Fund for Sacred Places is a program of Partners for Sacred Places in collaboration with the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Through this partnership at least 50 houses of worship will be awarded $10 million over four years beginning in 2016.
The Fund provides:
The combined training, consulting and financial resources will also help congregations make the most of their facilities as agents of community renewal, encouraging collaborations with outside groups to activate spaces in exciting and innovative ways that draw people to the church and encourage investment in the community.
The National Fund is supported by an Advisory Committee, bringing together faith leaders, architects, and philanthropists from across the country to inform the grant-making process.
The National Fund is generously supported by Lilly Endowment, Inc. with additional support in 2019 from the Gerry Charitable Trust.
