Today marks the fifth anniversary of #GivingTuesday—an
international day of generosity! Following the highly recognized
consumer-focused Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is intended
to encourage each of us to reflect on the charitable organizations that
mean the most to us and give back in some way, through gifts of time
and/or monetary donations.
For more than 45 years, DCPL has been working to protect DC’s historic
resources. With help from dedicated members and friends like you,
DCPL has accomplished so much—like saving the Old Post Office Building
and the Willard Hotel from demolition; successfully nominating Uline
Arena and the Warner Theater as landmarks; and the restoration and
reopening of the DC War Memorial, just to name a few.
Funds raised today will help underwrite DCPL’s critical advocacy work.
They will also support efforts to provide educational programming, like
our popular guided tours, lectures, and technical workshops. With
your help, we’ll continue to raise awareness of the importance of
historic preservation and the challenges faced by communities across
Thank you in advance for your #GivingTuesday donation
which will be used to help #preservedc. I send you best wishes for a
happy and healthy year-end.
