The Historic Houses Foundation is a wholly independent charity. Originally established as the Country Houses Foundation, it gives grants for the repair, conservation and preservation of buildings of historic or architectural significance together with their gardens and grounds, and supports the restoration and conservation of works of art in historic houses open to the public.

At Historic Houses, we are proud to support the Historic Houses Foundation. We are an entirely separate organisation, being a not-for-profit cooperative association of historic houses in private ownership. But we are pleased to endorse of the work of this similar-sounding charity and the good causes that it supports.
