NYS Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation awards matching grant to Elizabeth Cady Stanton Foundation

Hello Friends–

We are so pleased—absolutely delighted—to announce that the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Foundation, through NYS’s Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation, has received a grant of $330,000 from New York State’s Environmental Protection Fund for this project. Now, we need to match this!

We are still working on the remaining $11,800 to match our grant of $47,000 from the National Park Service’s Underground Railroad Network to Freedom program. Profound thanks to the Rochester Area Community Foundation, Canandaigua National Bank, and many, many generous private individuals for their contribution toward this goal.

With this money, we hope to put out bids very soon for stabilizing this building in place this fall.

Stay tuned!
