Why should YOU be a member?
Itâ€™s officially that time of year! Keep an eye out for your HFFI Membership Renewal
postcard in the mailâ€”itâ€™s coming!
You may ask yourself, why should I renew? Why should I be a member
of the Historic Fredericksburg Foundation, Inc.
? Well weâ€™re glad you askedâ€¦
Your donation helps support vital historic preservation efforts right here in Fredericksburg. HFFI staff and volunteers are constantly monitoring local preservation issue
s as well as communicating with city government regarding policy changes that could affect local preservation.
Membership to HFFI grants you a discounted rate
for events and tours
throughout the year. We are also beginning to work with other local organizations to share â€œmemberâ€ discounts (such as the James Monroeâ€™s Fredericksburg
Tour on May 16th!).
Your membership donation supports the oversight of HFFIâ€™s Easement Program
properties. More than 40 buildings and properties are reviewed annually by HFFI staff and volunteers.
Discounts, discounts, discounts!
