Roof Raisin' for Rosedale

At some point as we age, any of us may need a new hip, require a knee replacement, or some other type of healing restorative surgery. Well, think of Historic Rosedale in the same way. This aging, yet still beautiful Grand Dame needs a similar kind of healing restoration. She needs a new roof and we need your help.

Rosedale's current cedar shake roof is 2 to 3 years past its lifespan. At this moment is not leaking, but it is now coming off in bits and pieces. So it is critical we replace the roof before it becomes a hazard to the preservation of the house.

This our top preservation priority and it must get done now. Our plans are in place and have been approved by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission. Installation should occur anytime between now and mid September, if we have all necessary funding in place.

We have a generous anonymous donor who has pledged a matching challenge gift of $10,000. This will allow us to meet our $85,000 goal. With your help, we can raise the necessary matching $10,000. So please give today.

We invite you to join our roofing initiative. Whether you give $50 or $2,500, all gifts are greatly appreciated. If you make a gift greater than $100, your gift will be acknowledged with a permanent framed display in the house and you will be listed as a roof donor on our website for one year. With a gift of $200 or more, you and a guest will also be invited to our fabulous spring Patron’s Party!

Please help us raise the roof and give to Historic Rosedale today.
