Foundation / Corporation
Lilly Endowment Inc. and the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund
Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, public agencies, and Black churches for preservation projects. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended to improve the capacity of preservation organizations, community groups, and historic congregations to manage, steward, and use historic structures. Preserving Black Churches will uplift these often-overlooked places and ensure that the Black churches’ legacy of spirituality, history, and democracy endures.
As the oldest institutions created and controlled by African Americans, Black churches are a living testament to the achievements and resiliency of generations in the face of a racialized and inequitable society.
To preserve and uplift America’s historic places, the Lilly Endowment Inc. and the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund are investing in an initiative to help historic Black churches and congregations reimagine, redesign, and redeploy historic preservation to address the institutions’ needs and the cultural assets and stories they steward.
Grants from Preserving Black Churches are intended to preserve historic Black houses of worship (with either active or non-active congregations) and advance ongoing preservation activities. Grant funding will strengthen capacity for historic congregations, preservation organizations, and community groups to better steward, manage, and use their historic structures.
