Conservancy Pledges 14 Sacred Sites Grants

The Conservancy’s Sacred Sites committee met last week and awarded 14 grants totaling $228,000. The seven New York City grantees include the 1920-1923, Byzantine Revival Young Israel Beth El of Borough Park, Brooklyn, awarded $20,000 for masonry restoration, and the 1897, neo-Gothic German Evangelical Lutheran Church of St. Paul. St. Paul’s, which has offered German-language worship services in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood for more than 120 years, was granted $30,000 for aisle roof replacement. A $10,000 grant to Mary Immaculate Roman Catholic Church of Bellport, Long Island, was made possible with funding from the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation.

Statewide, additional grants were awarded in the Hudson Valley, Finger Lakes, and Buffalo-Niagara regions. These fourteen grantees provide social services and cultural outreach programs that serve nearly 60,000 community members annually, from food pantries and recovery meetings to local and regional orchestra performances.
