Dedicated to saving the world's most treasured places

Stewardship for Future Generations

World Monuments Fund is a private nonprofit organization founded in 1965 by individuals concerned about the accelerating destruction of important artistic treasures throughout the world. Now, over 50 years later, World Monuments Fund has orchestrated over 600 projects in 90 countries. With affiliate organizations established in Britain, India, Peru, Portugal, and Spain, World Monuments Fund sponsors an ongoing program for the conservation of cultural heritage worldwide. The World Monuments Watch, a global program launched in 1995 on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of World Monuments Fund, aims to identify imperiled cultural heritage sites and direct financial and technical support for their preservation.



In addition to hands-on management, our affiliates identify, develop, and manage projects, negotiate local partnerships, and attract local support to complement funds provided by U.S. donors.
