Online from Wednesday, November 11 – November 14
The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy's virtual conference, Saving Wright Now, offers an unprecedented chance to convene the global community of Wright specialists and aficionados from November 11-14, 2020. Preservationists, homeowners and public site leaders will participate in live panel discussions and open their doors to attendees through video and photographic tours. Without leaving home, journey to nearly twenty sites, many not regularly open to visitors-an itinerary that spans Wright's career and reaches from his Midwestern origins to Japan. Join us as we examine the current state of the movement to save Wright and celebrate the vital role that our strong community plays.

The National Fund for Sacred Places, a program of Partners for Sacred Places in collaboration with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, is pleased to announce grants to sixteen congregations across the United States.
These historic places, from an Art Deco gem in Asheville to a Modern sanctuary in New York City, will now have access to grant funding that will support not only bricks-and-mortar rehabilitation needs but also preservation planning, capacity building, and fundraising training. The grants and technical assistance provided through the National Fund help historic sacred places safeguard their physical legacy while strengthening the resources and support they provide to their communities.
The National Fund for Sacred Places, now in its fifth year, is generously supported by the Lilly Endowment. The program has now awarded over $6 million to 68 community-serving congregations representing 19 faith traditions in 39 states and the District of Columbia, and is on track to commit $20 million in capital grants to about 100 recipients by 2023. So far, this grantmaking has resulted in over $2 leveraged for every grant dollar invested in participating congregations.The list of this year's grantees is available here.Congratulations to these congregations and the many community partners working alongside them to preserve these special places!
