Our Mission: To preserve the nation’s heritage for future generations through innovative leadership, education, and programs.


Heritage Health Index 2014

Heritage Preservation is pleased to announce that we will be working, in cooperation with IMLS and NEH, to conduct a second Heritage Health Index. The original survey, conducted 10 years ago, was the first comprehensive study to assess the condition of U.S. collections. The 2014 survey is expected to launch this fall. Leading this project is Heritage Preservation's newest team member, Lesley A. Langa.



Help Heritage Preservation Meet a Challenge.
In today’s ever-changing world, Heritage Preservation remains the recognized leader in promoting collections care and conservation. Through preservation programming, resource materials, extended networks, and advocacy efforts, we strive to protect and preserve the nation’s heritage for future generations. 


Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Heritage Preservation. Your contribution will not only enable us to continue our efforts to preserve the nation’s cultural heritage but it will also be help us match a major challenge grant from The Bay and Paul Foundations.



MayDay 2014
Every year Heritage Preservation encourages libraries, museums, archives, historical societies, and preservation organizations to set aside May 1 to participate in MayDay by undertaking simple disaster preparedness measures. Any cultural institution submitting a brief description of its 2014 MayDay plans or accomplishments by May 31, 2014, will be entered in a drawing for disaster supplies donated by Gaylord Brothers.

Heritage Preservation is also offering its award-winning emergency resources at special MayDay prices from April 1 through May 31. And each week in May, Heritage Preservation is posting disaster preparedness tips on its Facebook page. Visit Heritage Preservation’s MayDay site for project ideas, information on prizes, and the book sale.


The Online Community Celebrates MayDay
In honor of MayDay, the Online Community is hosting a free webinar with David Carmicheal focused on utilizing the “supercharged” Incident Command System at cultural organizations. Join us for this hour long webinar on Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. (Eastern)
