At the festive June 4th groundbreaking for the Hayden Building, HBI announced the TrilogyFund, a $1 million fundraising campaign for three important HBI preservation projects.  The campaign, to be co-chaired by Mayor Thomas M. Menino and developer Ronald M. Druker, supports completion of HBI projects at the 1875 Hayden Building in Chinatown, the 1836 Alvah Kittredge House in Roxbury, and the 1867 Vertullo Building in Hyde Park.

Over the next nine months, HBI’s campaign team will be reaching out to friends and foundations to identify resources that will help to round out campaign goal. The three projects are expected to cost $10.2 million and, while each project benefits from conventional sources, tax credits and various subsidies, the condition of these historic buildings and the nature of the markets in which they sit require additional funds to complete the projects.  A successful campaign steps up the pace at which the three preservation projects begin construction.

Everyone can play a role in this effort.  HBI is grateful to Mayor Menino and Mr. Druker for their leadership on this effort.  The Trilogy Fund will allow three historic buildings to remain a vital part of Boston’s residential and commercial life and will also set the foundation for HBI’s continued work strengthening Boston’s neighborhoods through historic preservation. 

You can help by making a tax-deductible contribution for the Trilogy Fund to Historic Boston Inc. on our web site: http://historicboston.org/general/donate/index.html or by sending your check to Historic Boston Inc., 20 Eustis Street, Roxbury, MA  02119.  Gifts at every level make a difference.  If you have questions about the Trilogy Fund, please call or email Kathy Kottaridis at (617) 442 1859 or kathy@historicboston.org
