In honor of civic activist, former MPI president, and fearless advocate Wayne Goldstein, in 2009 MPI established a memorial fund to support preservation advocacy and to encourage research and historic designation in Montgomery County.
Earmarked donations are kept for these purposes and used when needed. In the past this fund has aided advocates, community activists, and legal actions in Gaithersburg, Silver Spring, Rockville, and the Ag Reserve.
Currently, funds are being accepted to support legal efforts to protect endangered Isaac Shoemaker Cemetery. As a 501c(3) nonprofit recognized by the IRS, donations to MPI are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
