We need YOU to help ROC the Day on 12.02.14!
On December 2nd, our community will come together to ROC the Day, and we at The Landmark Society of Western New York hope to make the day a huge success–for our organization and for the communities we serve. ROC the Day is a 24-hour giving opportunity to support all eligible not-for-profits in the nine-county Greater Rochester area. Community members are encouraged to visit ROCtheDay.org, a secure online giving platform, to contribute to any participating not-for-profit organization. All money given during ROC the Day stays local. If you Choose to support The Landmark Society on ROC the Day, your contribution will support the important work we do in communities large and small, rural and urban, to support preservation and community revitalization.
This year, we are directing all funds raised during this special day of giving to our Preservation Grant Fund program. Begun in 2012, this crucial program provides grants to municipalities, not-for-profits, community organizations, and potential developers to help get rehab projects off the ground. To date, the Preservation Grant has provided over $30,000 in funding to some of our region’s most important and at-risk historic buildings. (Click here and here to see some of our past grant recipients). In a very direct and immediate way, this program helps save buildings and revitalize communities. We ask you to help support this program.
After you’ve made your contribution, please help spread the word! Share the news with your friends, family and co-workers. Share the news on social media using #ROCtheDay.
And, as always, we THANK YOU for your commitment to The Landmark Society and to the communities and people of western New York.
