The St. Bartholomew's Conservancy (formerly the St. Bart's Preservation Foundation) is responsible for raising support for the restoration of "St. Bart's the Landmark" as a great public space. While remaining the site of an historic New York City church, it can function as a midtown civic and community gathering place, a culture and education center, a treasured neighborhood amenity, and a Park Avenue icon open to all.
To facilitate philanthropic donations from the community at large, The Conservancy's separate 501 (c)(3) designation was established in 1992 for nonreligious contributions. Philanthropic gifts are completely tax-deductible, and all money raised goes to improving and restoring its landmark buildings. See what's been done.
Our buildings are generously shared and used for many community and civic purposes. That high usage, as well as manmade and environmental causes, have taken a toll on the building’s shell and in some cases resulted in significant safety concerns.
Capital improvements are underway and ongoing. See some of our priority projects. There are many other planned projects to restore and preserve our landmark buildings.
