Beth Montes Memorial Internship & Outreach Fund
The Beth Montes Memorial Internship and Outreach Fund is dedicated to the memory of Elizabeth Montes, historic preservationist, historic designation research professional and four-term President of SOHO, who passed away on October 29, 2007 after a seven month battle with pancreatic cancer.
The Fund has been established to encourage others to follow in Beth's footsteps in the full time pursuit of historic preservation advocacy work. Funds will ensure that SOHO can provide the opportunity for individuals to learn and be mentored in the atmosphere of an advocacy organization.
To honor and continue her important work, the Fund will offer a paid internship for high school and graduate students with a special interest in historic preservation issues.
As President, Beth was all too aware of the financial challenges that often accompany nonprofit professions; the Fund will help support students seeking to enter public service through historic preservation advocacy by providing a paying internship, thereby advancing SOHO's mission.
The Beth Montes Internship and Outreach Fund for SOHO provides an opportunity for a deserving young person to have a summer internship at SOHO in the areas of advocacy, historic research, designation, public awareness, grant writing and development of educational programs.
This fund will help launch the careers of future community leaders, as was Beth herself, while at the same time providing SOHO with additional resources to support its mission. These are the things that Beth cared about and had long been interested in, bringing the next generation of preservationists into the fold and helping SOHO grow by providing additional staff support.
