Support Conservation

Our cultural heritage deserves the best care we can provide. Conservators play a vital role in protecting and preserving the art, objects, and historic sites that tell the story of our lives, history, and society. They use their expertise to perform treatment and prevent damage from occurring—and we need your support to help them and the work they do.

About Friends

FAIC delivers essential training and tools for conservators and preservation professionals, enables emergency preparedness and disaster response, and raises awareness about the urgent responsibility we all share—protecting our cultural heritage. We unite people who are passionate about preservation. Be part of the mission.

Help Preserve Our Past

By preserving our past, conservators help us understand ourselves and our future. They save the things that matter most—from icons, like the Declaration of Independence, to treasured heirlooms. Get an inside look at what they do and how you can help.
