ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON HERITAGE PRESERVATION TO MEET IN BEAVERTON
 
Oregon’s State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation (SACHP) will
consider nominations for the North Central Buckman Historic District and
Oak Hills Historic District to the National Register of Historic Places

Reformed Church, 2800 NW 153rd Ave., Beaverton.
 
The proposed North Central Buckman Historic District is located in
Portland within Multnomah County. It encompasses 94 acres with
boundaries of SE Ankeney St. to the north, SE 20th Avenue to the east,
SE Morrison St. to the south, and SE 12th Avenue to the west, with
portions of blocks outside these boundaries included.

acres with boundaries of NW West Union Road to the north, NW 143rd
Avenue to the east, NW Oak Hills Drive to the south and NW Perimeter

COLLABORATIVE EFFORT WITH CULTURAL TRUST CREATES YEAR-LONG GIFT
 
There are eleven days left for heritage organizations to collaborate
with the Cultural Trust in communicating about the rewards of cultural
philanthropy.  When your donors bestow a gift, encourage them to match
it with a donation to the Trust. Remember, the Trust grows only if your
organization grows and heritage organizations that work with the Trust
help build cultural funding for Oregon. Forming a partnership with the
Trust enables year-long gift giving.
 
Displaying trust materials near your gift shop might encourage a
donation from someone doing some last minute shopping. Mail Trust
materials with your fundraising appeals. Include a Trust book mark as an
insert with your donor acknowledgement letters. Remind your donors that
their membership qualifies as a donation and that they can double their
support at no additional cost by matching it with a donation to the
Trust and claiming the tax credit. For more ideas, visit

AHC OFFERS WINDOW REPAIR AND WEATHERIZATION GUIDEBOOK
      
The Architectural Heritage Center recently completed a Window Repair
and Weatherization Guidebook (
http://www.visitahc.org/files/pdf/AHC_WindowRepairGUIDEBOOK.pdf ), which
is available for download from its website. The guidebook offers helpful
information for owners of vintage homes. It identifies repair and
maintenance solutions that sustain historic integrity while improving
energy efficiency. The booklet includes a bibliography and contact
information for contractors who work on wood windows and those that
offer other weatherization solutions, such as storm windows.
