The Monahon Fund

Rick and Duffy

When Rick and Duffy Monahon died in early 2013, we lost two generous, dynamic leaders who made a tremendous impact on the communities and people of New Hampshire. On October 22, 2014 New Hampshire Preservation Alliance announced the availability of new seed grants to help community preservation projects. Friends and colleagues of preservationists Rick and Duffy Monahon came together over the past year to create a new fund that honors and advances the Monahons’ work and provides this resource.

 

Rick and Duffy, who died in a car accident in 2013, had a lasting influence on projects and people across the state, said Jennifer Goodman, executive director of the Preservation Allinace. They helped shape the preservation movement in New Hampshire with signature projects like Historic Harrisville, highly engaged service on statewide and local boards, and award-winning projects like the rehabilitations of the Gregg Free Library in Wilton, the Newbury Meetinghouse and Temple’s Town Hall. 

 

The Fund has nearly reached its initial goal of $100,000. “There are local projects all across the state that need this sort of funding to move forward effectively,” said Jennifer Goodman, executive director of the Preservation Alliance.

 

The small planning grants may be used for hiring a consultant to conduct a building assessment, to develop a feasibility study or to help with a group’s fundraising plans. An advisory committee will assist the Preservation Alliance in selecting projects and include representatives from the American Institute of Architects New Hampshire Chapter and the New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources.   Rick and Duffy both served on the Preservation Alliance’s Board of Directors at various times since its inception and supported its activities in many ways.

 

The Rick and Duffy Monahon Fund also launched a new Historic Preservation for the Future Fund at the N.H. Charitable Foundation. This Fund is designed to accept future gifts to honor others and meet changing preservation needs and opportunities over time.

 

The Fund's purpose:

  • to provide lasting recognition of Rick and Duffy Monahon;
  • to celebrate their impact on New Hampshire's people and communities through their architecture, preservation, and planning efforts;
  • and to inspire the kind of work necessary to save, revive, and steward the special places about which they were so passionate
