Historic preservation is a daunting challenge for any organization. Small non-profit organizations are particularly challenged due to resource limitations, both in funding and staffing. For these reasons, grant awards are vital. The Friends of the Rising Sun Inn have been privileged to have benefited from such grant awards.
Because these grants are so very vital to the success of the Friends mission, we would like to take a minute to recognize those organizations and agencies which have awarded us grants.
