Support our Annual Appeal!

Dear HSF Supporter:

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and Staff of Historic Savannah Foundation, we extend sincere thanks for your support of our mission and operations in 2014. Thanks to your generosity, HSF exceeded the matching grant pledge which makes this Annual Appeal the most successful to date. THANK YOU!


There are 52 weeks in a year and HSF packed each one with success—even in the path of an array of hurdles. From challenges to the Height Map and a green light for more hotels along River Street to the sale of half of Broughton Street to a private developer, HSF was up to its neck in issues. And from our Revolving Fund’s purchase and sale of endangered buildings along Whitaker Street to a well-received Realtor training workshop, we went a long way towards fulfilling our mission. In the Chinese tradition, 2014 was the Year of the Horse. Given all we accomplished this past year, we think it’s appropriate because HSF was a workhorse! In Chinese lore, the horse is one who makes unremitting efforts to improve oneself. It is energetic, bright, warm-hearted and able. We agree. And we continue to plod along.

We’re not taking credit for ourselves. We’re acknowledging and thanking you—our members and supporters—for giving us the necessary horsepower to make 2014 a success. Your encouragement, your resources, your helping hands, and your belief in us propels us forward. As you read this report of 52 successes and 12 outstanding highlights, do so with pride because you helped all of this happen in one form or another. If you were a docent at the Davenport House; if you donated to our Annual Appeal; if you helped during Preservation Festival; if you bought a ticket to our Gala; if you helped clean up a veteran’s cottage on Henry Lane; or if you helped pick up litter in Cuyler-Brownville…you advanced HSF.

Thank you for the confidence you placed in us and our programs. Preservation is a chore…like plowing a field. Hold the reins tight, keep a straight line and press on from sunup to sundown. It’s hard work, but we never tire because you are with us every step of the way.
