Be a Member
From wood window workshops to whole house moves, from the Florence Fix-It Grant to our historic Plaque program, everything HWF does is powered by member support.
Join and give annually at the level that works best for you! Or become a sustaining member and we’ll automatically deduct the amount of your choosing from your credit or debit card every month.
An HWF membership is also a great housewarming, wedding or birthday gift. Support your historic community at $48 a year, $2500 or somewhere in between. Your dollars make local preservation work.
Be a Volunteer
HWF is member-driven and boosted by a multi-talented volunteer network.
Want to help? Whatever your interests may be, we have a place for you: office administration, guiding tours, photography, events and more! And at Legacy Architectural Salvage, there are opportunities to help with deconstruction, our wood workshop or retail.
Please complete our Volunteer Interest Form, or just give us a call at 910.762.2511.
For more than half a century, HWF has been supported by members, donors and sponsors. We receive no federal grants and rely solely on you, our heritage-minded community, to fulfill our mission.
Please give in any amount to support events, workshops, and initiatives like our renowned Plaque Program, Legacy Architectural Salvage or Tar Heels Go Walking—educational tours done in partnership with New Hanover County Public Schools. Your gift also supports our revolving fund, used for programs such as Florence Fix-It Grants and projects like helping to save and relocate a Northside bungalow in 2018. Together, we’re preserving and protecting the irreplaceable. Thank you!
