One Non-profit Helping Another
Historic Florida Keys Foundation has long been known as a guardian of heritage properties up and down the Keys. This season, they have also provided critical support for TSKW, helping sponsor our season of cultural and creative activities. They join hundreds of our local benefactors in a desire to see the Armory used for an array of cultural programming, free public events, lively concerts, lectures, and exhibitions. We are grateful to one of the island’s leading heritage organizations for lending a helping hand.
The mission of the Historic Florida Keys Foundation is to promote historic preservation through education, advocacy, collaboration, and stewardship. The Foundation oversees the leases on four historic state-owned properties. They directly manage Old City Hall, while the Oldest House, the Armory, and the Truman Little White House are on long term leases to other non-profit entities that manage them on a daily basis. The Foundation provides staff for the Monroe County Historic Preservation Program, conducts walking tours at the Key West Cemetery, to raise funds for cemetery preservation and education, and will soon host its 29th annual Preservation Awards program. This past year they also provided funding to help with the restoration of the Schooner Western Union.
