Foundation for the Preservation of historic and natural monuments

Saving the Past for the Future

Dear reader, welcome to our website!

 

We are a non-governmental and non-profit organisation based in Poland and dedicated to the protection and rescue of historic monuments. In November 2021 we celebrated 26 years of activity, in which we contributed to preservation of numerous endangered objects and sites.

Here a short read on how we work

 

First, to avoid any misunderstandings, we would like to make clear that the essence of our activities is not providing subsidies for renovation, but undertaking various efforts to motivate owners to either protect their buildings – or sell them to investors who appreciate old architecture. 

 

The joint efforts of lawyers, administrative specialists, historians, experts in various fields, journalists, civil servants, local government officials and locals usually leads to a satisfying outcome for everyone. 

 

We strongly believe that caring is acting, but even though our modus operandi is very time and cost effective, it typically takes 3 to 5 years to get the first protective works underway.

 

Barely a week goes by without more monuments being reported to us as requiring intervention. We would very much like to be able to address all queries – the only obstacle to undertake rescue actions is the lack of necessary budget.
