LAPC is one of only 16 houses of worship nation-wide to receive an invitation to join the 2020 National Fund for Sacred Places (NFSP), a grant-making and support program of Partners for Sacred Places in collaboration with the National Trust for Historic Preservation.


This highly prestigious grant provides up to $250,000 in a 2-to-1 match for restoration projects. And LAPC is the first Presbyterian church in New York State to be invited to participate in the National Fund program!

This award represents a momentous opportunity for our church as we approach the next critical phase of our 22-year capital restoration effort.


OPENING DOORS: The Campaign for Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church will raise the funds so desperately needed to repair the deteriorating foundation, front brownstone façade and study tower, entrance doors, and monumental Tiffany stained glass triptych.
