To make a tax-deductible donation towards a grant fund for the preservation of buildings in Index that are listed on the National, State and/or Snohomish County historic registers, please note this in the memo of your check. Funds will be granted through a bi-annual competitive process with monies restricted to paying for construction costs that specifically benefit historic preservation. For example, a project such as the Bush House restoration is eligible to apply for this funding since the building is listed on the Washington Heritage Register. At this time, contributions can be mailed to PO Box 299 Index, WA 98256.
