Since 1961, New Haven Preservation Trust has been an independent voice for preservation in New Haven. Over the years, our friends and neighbors have given generously to support our mission to honor and preserve New Haven’s architectural heritage through advocacy, education, and collaboration. Today, nearly one-third of our operating budget comes directly from community support. With your help, we can continue to preserve and enrich the physical fabric of the City of New Haven.

Every contribution, regardless of amount, helps carry out our vital mission to protect New Haven’s rich architectural and cultural heritage. You can donate online or contribute by check. We appreciate your support. 

Thank you!
