Questers Grants and P&R Projects

Preserving the past for the future.

Encourage preservation and restoration on local levels by state chapters.

Colorado State Preservation and Restoration (P&R) Grant Awards

To apply for a state P&R grant, a chapter completes a P&R form and must include 20% of the total project cost from its own treasury. The application follows the International Guidelines for P&R awards.


Funding for the Colorado State Questers P&R Grant Awards is provided through fundraisers held at the Fall Luncheon and Spring Council meetings as well as donations from state chapters. Awards can be $5,000-$6,000.

Chapters may submit recommendations for the State President’s project each year to the executive board. The state president decides on the project for her term. The project can be for 1 to 2 years but it must be completed by the end of her term. Chapters may also donate to this P&R project. Previous projects include:
