About French Heritage Society
French Heritage Society (FHS) is an American nonprofit organization whose mission is to protect the French architectural and cultural legacy in France and the United States.  Our generous patrons help us ensure that these treasures survive to inspire future generations by supporting the three key areas of our mission - Preservation, Education and Cultivation of French-American Friendship.

FHS raises funds to support the preservation of culturally and historically significant French architecture in France and the U.S.  To date, FHS has awarded nearly $15 million in grants to over 670 châteaux, historic properties and gardens.  FHS also creates special funds for emergency restoration efforts, which have provided critical support following the fire at Notre-Dame in Paris and Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

Each year, FHS selects and sends around 30 students from universities in France and the U.S. across the Atlantic for internships at esteemed organizations.  Since the program’s inception, over 550 students have benefited from these opportunities. The Richard Morris Hunt Prize, which was founded in 1990 in partnership with The Architects Foundation, fosters and supports cross-cultural professional exchange for architects between France and the U.S.  Two French or American laureates are selected each year, alternating between the two countries.

French-American Friendship
FHS’s network includes ten chapters across the U.S. and one in Paris and collectively, they organize over 50 events each year to raise local awareness and funds for FHS’s mission.  In addition, the FHS community comes together for annual fundraising galas in New York, Palm Beach and Paris.  FHS is also known for the specially curated trips to France that it offers its members every year.
