To date, FHS has awarded nearly $15 million in grants to over 670 châteaux, historic properties and gardens.  FHS also creates special funds for emergency restoration efforts, which have provided critical support following the fire at Notre-Dame in Paris and Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.  If future generations are to know the beauty of historic landmarks and properties, it is our responsibility to act now to protect them.
