Promoting Diplomacy Through Cultural Stewardship
A partnership devoted to the ongoing care of U.S. properties abroad
Initiated in 2012, The Fund to Conserve United States Diplomatic Treasures Abroad is a public-private partnership with the U.S. Department of State. The nonprofit organization promotes the conservation and preservation of the Department’s overseas properties and heritage collections of cultural and architectural significance. Representing over 200 years of U.S. diplomacy, these artifacts and structures reflect and honor the rich traditions of countries where the U.S. operates diplomatic missions.
Through fundraising, The Fund to Conserve advocates active stewardship of these national treasures in U.S. chanceries, consulates and ambassadors’ residences. By shepherding their restoration and ongoing care, the U.S. pays homage to the cultural heritage of our nation’s allies and promotes the true spirit of diplomacy.
