As RESTORE begins its thirty second year of innovative educational
programs in architectural conservation, I would like again to
express my thanks to the alumni and friends of RESTORE and to ask
for your continued support of RESTORE in 2009.

Since its founding in 1976, RESTORE has offered a broad range of
educational programs in architectural conservation. RESTORE's
materials science approach to preservation education is unique,
providing the fundamental tools and methodology to understand
complex architectural conservation problems. RESTORE brings together
a diverse cross-section of people who are entrusted with the
preservation of our architectural heritage, including design
professionals and cultural resource professionals, artisans and
contractors. RESTORE is the only organization in the country that is
providing technical preservation education to this diverse

RESTORE is funded primarily by grants and by tuition from our
workshops and courses. Those sources cover only part of RESTORE's
yearly budget. We depend on contributions from RESTORE Alumni and
friends to help bridge the gap between expenditures and income.
RESTORE is counting on your donations now more than ever.  At a time
when the need for RESTORE's innovative educational programs is
critical to people in the building preservation industry, Federal
and State funding has been drastically cut or eliminated. With your
generous support, RESTORE will be able to sustain its innovative
programs and continue to provide outstanding educational programs.

RESTORE has a successful track record in preservation education
which is evident in the number of RESTORE Alumni that have
participated in the numerous iconic preservation projects undertaken
in New York during the last three decades.   All have had RESTORE
Alumni on the job.  Your contribution to RESTORE will have an impact
beyond helping RESTORE directly; your support will also further
preservation knowledge and education and enlightened stewardship of
our architectural heritage.

Please show your support for RESTORE by making a contribution.  Your
contribution is critically important and will have an impact.   All
donations to RESTORE are fully tax deductible.   Your generosity on
behalf of RESTORE is greatly appreciated!
