AAUW Janesville calls the Janesville Woman’s Club Building its home. Recently, the Foundation that works to preserve and maintain this historic building applied for a major grant that would allow them to complete several vital repairs to the almost 100-year-old building, such as the leaking foundation, the inadequate climate-control system, crumbly walls, and roof.
They are 1 of 20 projects in the U.S. (and only project in Wisconsin) competing for funds from Partners in Preservation, an initiative created by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and American Express to engage the public in preserving and increasing awareness of America’s historic places and their role in sustaining local communities
In order to win, they must receive the most votes for their project through an online voting process. The voting period runs now through October 29. Each person can cast 5 votes per day. Winners will be announced on October 30.
