Whether you’re an old friend or new acquaintance, please support us in 2018 – and beyond!



Why the Historic Districts Council?

You don’t need to read about HDC’s accomplishments – you see them each time you walk through Greenwich Village, Brooklyn Heights, or any one of the nearly 150 historic districts that we protect every day.

Our team reviews every single public proposal affecting historic buildings in New York and provides more testimony than any other organization. That’s over 486 proposals in 2015 alone!

And that’s not the half of it:

We nurture community groups through our Six to Celebrate program, educate the next generation of preservationists in our seminars and tours, and lend a voice to a network of over 500 grassroots organizations across our city.

All donations are fully tax-deductible.
