Friends of Heritage Preservation

In 1998 Suzanne Deal Booth founded the Friends of Heritage Preservation (FOHP), as a small charitable giving group. The FOHP has successfully participated and contributed to more than 80 preservation and conservation projects in 18 countries around the world, including an architectural retrofit of a Napoleonic coffee house on the Grand Canal in Venice and the preservation of Donald Judd’s concrete sculptures in Marfa, TX. FOHP also addresses intangible cultural heritage, including a stone carving training program in Jordan for Syrian refugees and the documentation of the civil rights movement by the last of its participants in an Oral History project in Alabama with the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute.
