Revolving Fund

The city’s Preservation Revolving Loan Fund was established by the City Council in response to recommendations of the Historic Preservation Element of the 1989 Comprehensive Plan. It was capitalized at a rate of $50,000 per year from FY 92/93 through FY 96/97 for a fund asset total of $250,000.

The fund is designed to work as a revolving fund. Monies are lent to assist in providing gap financing for historic preservation projects; loan repayment reimburses the fund and makes those dollars available for future projects. Any non-profit charitable organization with historic preservation among its objects and purposes is eligible to apply through the RHDC to City Council for funding. All requests to be considered on a case-by-case basis. The fund acts as a reserve, and is available to respond to opportunities and threats to Raleigh historic properties when they arise. It provides a more predictable and responsible way for the city to anticipate and respond to historic preservation needs.

Past Projects:
Roger-Bagley-Daniels-Pegues House ($75,000)

Current Projects:
Plummer T. Hall House, 814 Oberlin Road ($58,594)
Gethsemane Seventh Day Adventist Church, 501 S. Person Street ($91,000)
Crabtree Jones House, 3017 Wake Forest Road ($100,000)

There are no revolving funds available at this time. Funds will be replenished at the conclusion of the current projects.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
