An Opportunity to Dig In

Preservation Retreats at the Grand Isle Lake House are an immersive adult learning experience designed to support anyone undertaking or considering a community development or historic preservation project.

Attendees will be asked to present a challenge or issue that once solved will move their project forward.  This brief presentation is followed by a robust and informative group discussion with peers, funders and technical support providers.

All retreats begin at 3:00 pm and end after lunch the following day.  Space is limited to around 20 participants with a limited number of single rooms, so reservations should be made as early as possible. The 2017 costs are $95 for a shared room and $125 for a single room.  Pre-registration is required.

Fundraising and Project Management May 21-22, 2018

What are some techniques that community projects are doing to successfully fund-raise while enhancing the use of their historic buildings? Christine Graham of CPG Fundraising will be on hand to provide training in the area of capital campaigns and annual giving. We will also explore how to manage a rehabilitation project, work with grantors, contractors, and the community to help you get to success.
Churches And Sacred Places, June 27-28, 2018

Churches and Sacred Places, June 27-28, 2018

Churches and sacred places continue to play a critical role in the health and wellness of our communities. They often act as overflow shelters for our most vulnerable citizens or as community gathering places for cultural performances or events. All the while, these buildings can be challenging to maintain. We offer this retreat in partnership with Partners for Sacred Places, a non-denominational nonprofit organization, to explore potential partnerships for existing churches and new uses for under-utilized church buildings.

Registration for all Preservation Retreats will open by March 1, 2018. Sign up for our newsletter to get a notification delivered to your inbox when registrations open.
