Our Annual Appeal
Thank you for your generosity over the years as we have worked to restore our building. We hope you have had a chance to see the work that your donations have allowed us to do. Over the last few years, you have helped us to restore our front stoop and newel posts, repair and restore the oriel over the front door, and repair our roof. This past year, we replaced the non-historic windows and restored the historic windows in our building with a Community Preservation grant from the City of Boston and your generous donations.
We are pleased to announce that the City of Boston has awarded us a $300,000 Community Preservation grant to pay for a substantial portion of repairing the deteriorating brownstone details on our building’s façade, repairing and reinstalling the cast iron elements, and repairing the rear oriel. As we continue to restore and preserve our headquarters, we hope to set an example for the standards of restoration that we feel should be maintained throughout the historic district; however, we cannot do this without your support.
We hope that you will consider making a tax-deductible donation to help us raise the money for this important work.
