The Linda Dishman Legacy Fund

The Linda Dishman Legacy Fund

Honor the L.A Conservancy’s retired President and CEO with a gift!

After more than 31 years as the Conservancy’s fearless leader, Linda Dishman retired at the end of December 2023.  To honor her legacy of tirelessly working to preserve the places that matter most in our region, the Conservancy’s Board has established a fund that will help save places in Los Angeles by providing preservation grants to diverse partners throughout L.A. County on an ongoing basis.

These grants will offer a critical source of funding, available when most needed and used to help support important preservation efforts, such as historic context statements, feasibility studies, historic nominations, helping cities throughout Los Angeles County strengthen their municipal policies around preservation and supporting non-profits working to save places of cultural significance.

Do you want to know more or learn how to make a significant or multi-year pledge? Contact Development Director Liz Leshin at or (213) 430-4213.


Give with trust.
