Los Angeles Conservancy End of Year Appeal

There is so much to admire when it comes to the work of the Los Angeles Conservancy. Among preservation organizations they are rare in the sense that they keep and maintain an active public list of ongoing preservation issues in the L.A. area. This list is posted to their website where anyone is able to see it. Keeping this list in turn provides a powerful incentive for people to become members and/or to donate to their Preservation Advocacy Fund. I was particularly impressed by this end of year appeal from their Executive Director Linda Dishman. This appeal and the programs of the Conservancy are an excellent model for other organizations to follow.

Dear Isaac,

In October, we held "I Heart Garden Apartments Day" to bring awareness to Greater Los Angeles' nearly forty garden apartment communities and the various threats they face. Photos by Shannon Ryan/L.A. Conservancy. 
As 2012 comes to a close, the Los Angeles Conservancy is actively involved in nearly 50 preservation issues throughout Los Angeles County. We’re working to save historic places from demolition as well as pursuing proactive outreach to help more cities establish and improve preservation laws and incentives.
We expect our number of active issues to increase in 2013, which is why we ask you to help strengthen our efforts by becoming a member or donating to the Preservation Advocacy Fund by December 31.
Your support matters:  two-thirds of the Conservancy’s revenue comes from membership and fundraising, and most of this revenue directly supports our dual mission of advocacy and education.
Thank you – and all of our best wishes for the holidays!
