How will our donations be used?

HPNA has contracted with two organizations to write and process our historic district applications. Bero Architects is working on our Gregory Tract submission while The Landmark Society of Western NY will be working on the other three historic district submissions.

90% of donated funds will go toward the work to evaluate properties within each historic district, write the applications for all four historic districts, and manage the application process through New York’s State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO). The balance of funds cover SEAC’s fiduciary fees and communications to neighbors, i.e., postal mailing costs.

Tax-deductible donations can be made online via PayPal to Southeast Area Coalition (SEAC).

Thank you to our donors!
