Preservation Revolving Fund Off & Running

By Barry E. Hager

The donation drive for SOHO's Preservation Revolving Fund has kicked into high gear! Only days after Vonn Marie May delivered an announcement about the Fund during her presentation at the People in Preservation Awards, a generous donation was received from Alan Johnson (son of famed architect William Templeton Johnson) and Vivienne Griffin. Other donations have also been received from Doug Scott and Ben Baltic, and Corey Braun. thus the Fund has begun to grow. The new committee for the Preservation Revolving Fund will be coordinating fundraising efforts and hopes to foster rapid growth for the Fund.

The Preservation Revolving Fund is SOHO's newest tool in the battle to preserve San Diego County's historic resources. The Fund will allow SOHO to purchase endangered properties, stabilize them, place restrictive covenants on the properties to prevent their destruction, then re-sell to sympathetic buyers, with the proceeds available for use to save the next building.

If you are interested in making a donation, or have any leads for possible donations, please contact SOHO.
