Get Involved

Help strengthen the fabric of our community by getting involved in our efforts to preserve the historic buildings that make our neighborhoods unique. Together, we can make a difference.

If you have any questions about how to get involved, feel free to email us at

Meet others in our community who share your passion for preserving the neighborhoods that make our city unique.

Join us at 5:30 p.m. the last Wednesday of every month at the J.E. Halvorson House, 606 Fifth Ave. SE, Cedar Rapids.

Contribute your ideas for educational programs, advocacy opportunities and watchdog activities to help protect threatened buildings. Contact us to find out how you can participate.

Save CR Heritage relies heavily on donations of all sizes to drive our preservation efforts. We’re a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations are tax-deductible and go to support efforts to save threatened historic structures in our community.

We accept both in-kind donations and financial contributions. To arrange an in-kind donation, email us at or call (319) 360-7145. You can also make a monetary contribution.

We host events throughout the year to advocate for and raise awareness about our mission. From gathering to support threatened structures to a tour of significant historic properties, your presence and engagement are vital to the success of our mission. Check back here, or sign up for email updates to be notified of upcoming events.

Want to make sure you never miss an opportunity to get involved? Get news updates and information about our events, meetings, and volunteer opportunities by signing up for our mailing list.

As a volunteer, you play an important role in standing up for the character of our community. Whether you’re a casual admirer of unique properties or an avid historic preservationist, we encourage you to become a volunteer.

Our current project, the J.E. Halvorson House, needs volunteers for activities such as painting and organizing, as well as skilled labor for plumbing and carpentry.
