Preservation & Beyond
For over half a century, World Monuments Fund has led the way in conserving the world's irreplaceable treasures — architectural and cultural sites that span the history of human civilization.
Saving Our Cultural Heritage
The stories sites tell are universal. The dangers they face are immense. The cultural treasures that have been entrusted to us are under constant attack by time, neglect, natural forces, and human actions. Preserving this heritage has—from the beginning—been the overriding mission of World Monuments Fund, as we work with local partners around the globe to provide financial and technical support for preservation, restoration, and long-term stewardship.
While saving these sites for future generations is our immediate task, our vision extends well beyond repair and restoration.
Safeguard Treasured Places
We would not be able to accomplish our work without the involvement of a dedicated global community of people who care about cultural heritage. Your fully tax-deductible gift goes directly to support preservation projects, fieldwork, advocacy, and educational programs at treasured places around the world. Help World Monuments Fund sustain its commitment to irreplaceable heritage sites—and those who devote themselves to their survival, ensuring they remain protected now, and in the years to come.
