Boston Needs you, Here's How You Can Help
"People visit Boston for the history preserved and enlivened by its institutions, for the city’s wealth of art and music, but just as much for its vibrant, urbane neighborhoods and streets. One relies on the other [...] It’s a complex ecosystem, often driven by culture,” wrote the Boston Globe on April 18th, 2020. And we at the Alliance couldn’t agree more!
As the days of isolation expand into months, people long to return to their city and to some level of normalcy. At the Boston Preservation Alliance, we are finding that Bostonians recognize--now, more than ever--the emotional connectedness and energy that the city brings to its people. The mutually dependant spheres of people and place are accentuated when the link between them is broken.
There’s a lot we don’t know about the future of this pandemic, but, what we know for certain is that Boston needs you--to participate; to support; to reaffirm that people and place matter.
Our work as preservationists is more important than ever as our historic buildings, businesses, parks, monuments, and neighborhoods represent a much-needed sense of continuity and community. It is this dynamic intersection of people and place that continues to drive our work at the Alliance; it is to these places that we all long to return.
Here are some ways you can help us, help Boston:
Thank you for your consideration and support; we wish you the best of health and extend our heartfelt appreciation to all of those who are working tirelessly on the front lines of this epidemic--while you save us, we’ll save your city!
For over 40 years the Boston Preservation Alliance has served the residents of Boston as a nonprofit organization that protects and improves the quality of Boston's architectural and cultural heritage. Through advocacy and education, we bring people and organizations together to influence the future of Boston's historic buildings, landscapes, and communities.
Without our members, donors, and community partners, the voice of the Alliance would fall silent–a growing membership makes our voice stronger because together we make Boston better.
