Partners in Preservation - Vote Today and help the National Trust for Historic Preservation give away a million dollars!

Here is your chance to help the National Trust for Historic Preservation and American Express give away $1 million in preservation grants to deserving projects in the Chicago area through Partners in Preservation.

Launched in 2006, the Partners in Preservation program is an initiative in which American Express, in partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, pledged $5 million over a five-year period toward preserving historic sites in the United States. This commitment will help protect historic and cultural landmarks and will strengthen local communities.

This year the focus is on Chicago and its surrounding counties.

American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation encourage all Chicagoland residents, and National Trust members and friends who care about our nation's historic places, to visit a dedicated website, http://www.partnersinpreservation.com, learn about 25 sites vying for $1 million in preservation grants and cast a vote for their favorite site.  The public can vote once daily through October 10.  Visitors can also share their memories, photos and thoughts about each landmark on the website, encouraging others to vote for their favorite sites. American Express, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and a special Advisory Committee comprised of local Chicago dignitaries will review the public’s votes along with each site’s monetary needs to determine how the $1 million in grants will be awarded. The site that receives the highest number of popular votes is guaranteed to receive funding. The sites being awarded American Express Partners in Preservation grants will be announced to the public in November 2007.

So here's your chance to (as they say in Chicago):  "vote early and often."  And help us give away $1 million!

Thanks for your support of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
