Partners & Sponsors

Preservation Kentucky relies on the generosity of individuals, foundations, businesses and nonprofit partners to support the programs programs and activies we deliver to Kentucky.  We are grateful for their philanthropic spirit of giving to help us achieve our mission and deliver our services to individuals, nonprofits and communities throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Thank you for your support!

Member Partners

Members are an important part of our organization.  As a member of Preservation Kentucky, you join a special group of Kentuckians who understand that historic preservation is a collective cause with benefits for all, and want to share the diversity of our architectural and cultural heritage with others to help foster respect for our state heritage.  Members also help keep us informed on what’s happening in their communities and alert us to any issues or difficulties in their areas.


Memberships levels are structured to appeal a diverse group of participants and are renewed annually on the anniversary date of their donation.  Learn more about our membership opportunities here.

Community Partners

Local preservation organizations, municipalities and government agencies benefit from Preservation Kentucky’s statewide perspective and ability to bring other partners together to discuss shared issues, whether they are preservation hot-topics or more day-to-day organizational issues.  These partnerships are critical to our cause and collectively form a united voice for historic preservation.


Our nonprofit partners are our eyes and ears and essential to keeping us informed of issues and difficulties in their areas. Conversely, we help bring partners together to benefit from one another’s expertise and experiences – as well as the experts we bring to the state.  Our position as the nonprofit partner of the Kentucky Heritage Council (Cabinet of the Tourism, Arts & Heritage Cabinet), and the state representative and liaison for the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Preservation Action also helps us build awareness of issues impacting historic preservation nationwide.
