What is Five for the Future?
Five for the Future is the new membership program of Preservation South Carolina. With five levels of monthly giving, $5.00 to $25.00, there's a level for every budget. Five for the Future members help to sustain the work we do in preserving historic structures throughout the state of South Carolina.
Where does the money go?
Funds from Five for the Future supplement the capital pool set aside for the purchase or optioning of historical properties. Proceeds from the sale of these structures are returned to the pool, thus generating revenue for future acquisitions. Funds also help to support staff, administrative, and legal resources needed to carry out education, advocacy and preservation easement work.
Why is the money needed?
There are hundreds of historical properties in South Carolina that would be good candidates for our real estate program; however, we can only support a few in our program at one time given the limited funds available. Five for the Future will allow us to secure additional funding for the capital pool. Your gifts also help to offset the ongoing administrative costs that are necessary to continue our work in rescuing and renovating historically significant structures.
What are the benefits of Five for the Future membership?
Your Five for the Future membership entitles you to a number of exclusive benefits and privileges, including personal invitation to all special receptions, donor luncheons, and private lectures hosted by Preservation South Carolina. You will also have the opportunity to take part in intimate, guided tours of newly completed restoration projects before they open to the public.
