We have succeeded in protecting the Pine Street African Burial Ground!

Were able to raise $140,000 thanks to more than 250 contributions from individuals, businesses and organizations, and last week we purchased this significant historic site. We are humbled by the outpouring of support for this initiative, and grateful to our partner Harambee, whose commitment, wisdom and collaborative spirit has helped us inspire a region to join together to bring this piece of history to light.

Now that the site is secured, we still need your help to raise the remaining $60,000 of our $200,000 goal so we can restore the building on site in preparation for its future use as an interpretive center. You can donate at donorbox.org/protect-pine-street-african-burial-ground and you contact us to pledge in-kind construction services and materials that we can count toward our fundraising goal!
