Farewell to a Colleague and Friend

January 27th, 2016

http://www.myhsf.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/Terri-Bio-Photo-small2.jpgHSF’s top-notch and much-loved Development Director, Terri O’Neil, will be leaving HSF in early February.  Terri has accepted an offer to become the Development Director at the Savannah Philharmonic.  This is a terrific opportunity for her, and we wish her all the best.  It is flattering that our excellent personnel are sought by other quality non-profits, and it says much about what Terri and HSF have achieved in the last five years.

Among other major accomplishments credited to her, Terri established the Preservation Festival, built a solid team within HSF’s Development Department, helped guide HSF through a Capital Campaign, assisted with fundraising for the National Preservation Conference, and set up a Planned Giving Program.  Her commitment to preservation and dedication to HSF showed in the energy and enthusiasm she poured into this organization’s events and programs.

Needless to say, Terri will be sorely missed.  The good news is, HSF is on solid financial ground and we have begun searching for a successor.  With key input from Frances Colón, our Special Events Coordinator, and Chassidy Malloy, our Membership and Volunteer Coordinator, HSF will move carefully but swiftly to fill the position of Development Director.

In the meantime, we encourage our members, donors and sponsors to wish Terri well with her new opportunity.

Environmental History Symposium

Wormsloe-TopBar-web

Coastal Nature, Coastal Culture: Environmental Histories of the Georgia Coast. A Symposium.

  • Why does the Georgia coast matter? How 5000 years of people and cultures influenced, and were shaped by, Georgia’s 100 mile coastline of barrier islands and lowcountry.
  • A first-of-its-kind symposium, building a much-needed bridge between the history of the American South and the booming field of environmental history.
  • How changing landscapes on Georgia’s coastal plain reflect the interaction of different visions and cultures with the natural environment.
  • Eleven leading writers and scholars in history or literature present original research on critical topics, revealing how the past has shaped the present and could affect the future.
  • Related visits to coastal historic and environmental sites.

 

Thursday, February 18 – Saturday, February 20, 2016
Coastal Georgia Center, 305 Fahm Street, Savannah.

Registration: $50. (Additional fees for Friday lunch and some tours.)

OUR 2015 ANNUAL REPORT!
HSF1501 annual report cover
If you’ve ever wondered what preservation in action looks like, just gaze upon the array of HSF’s activities reflected in this 2015 Annual Report. And if you’ve ever questioned the value of historic preservation, just imagine what Savannah would look like if HSF had not been working so hard over the past 60 years. In a word, it’s remarkable.

Historic Savannah Foundation is unlike a lot of other advocacy organizations. We don’t just lob in comments from the “peanut gallery.” We put our own money on the line and we directly intervene to make a measurable difference. We don’t live in theory; we live in reality—in the here and now. So when HSF uses its Revolving Fund to save endangered historic buildings on Whitaker Street and Meldrim Row; when HSF hosts the National Preservation Conference for an unprecedented third time; and when HSF helps rehabilitate facades along Broughton Street…we’re improving Savannah and making a measurable difference. And that’s just in the last year alone. When you couple that with what we’ve accomplished over our 60-year history, it is more than remarkable…it’s transformational.

And whom do we have to thank for this record of achievement? You — our members, supporters and volunteers. Take a victory lap! You’ve earned it. But when you come back around, be aware that plenty of work awaits us. So don’t rest on your laurels, but chip in and give us a hand. We need your continued financial support to continue our successes well beyond our 60-year mark.

Thanks and congratulations for making 2015 so remarkable.

Sincerely,

DC-Sig-web
