Upcoming 2020 Offerings
Our online Preservation Retreats series is an immersive adult learning experience designed to support anyone undertaking or considering a community development or historic preservation project. Retreats offer an opportunity to connect with communities throughout the state working on similar projects, connect with potential funders to learn about grant opportunities and to receive technical assistance about your specific project.
Attendees will be asked to spend five minutes sharing a challenge or issue that once solved will move their project forward. These brief presentation will be followed by robust and informative group discussions with peers, funders and technical support providers.
No remaining retreats are scheduled for 2020.

2020 Cancelled Retreats
Due to Covid-19, our regularly scheduled Preservation Retreats at the Grand Isle Lake House have been cancelled. We are working to offer an on-line retreat series. Please check back here for updates. Thank you.
“After 4 years of fundraising and beginning to run out of energy for our one-room schoolhouse restoration project, the retreat at the Grand Isle Lake House was really helpful. We got information on contacts for different kinds of grants and how to write them and lots of support not to get discouraged! Through these contacts and the support of PTV and the Vermont State Division of Historic Preservation we have been able to complete the grant writing process and receive the funds we need to get a matching grant. We are on our way to a new foundation!”
