2019 Preservation Piedmont Survey
Preservation Piedmont was established in 1993 as a non-profit, grass-roots organization dedicated to preservation, public awareness, and advocacy. We serve the City of Charlottesville, the County of Albemarle, and adjacent localities. We are looking for input from current and past members to better improve our programming.

We give $1,000 in grants to local preservation efforts each year. We have recently given grants to the Louisa County Historical Society and the B.F. Yancey Heritage and History Project. If you have or know of a worthy project, please let us know! You can submit a grant request formally by emailing

We are an all volunteer organization and membership dues go directly to support programming and grants. We haven’t increased our dues in over 10 years: $35 for individuals, $60 for two-person households, and $15 for students. Other organizations with similar missions charge $50-$60 for membership dues. We are considering raising our membership dues to offer expanded programs. Do you feel that the value of the work we do matches the membership dues?
Should we increase our dues next year?
