The NCA Preservation Loan Program
As the loan was paid back, those funds could be loaned again to another community. The program was later broadened to include helping a group trying to keep a carousel from being broken up by bringing it to a new home for the public to enjoy. Criteria for the Preservation Loan Program can be found online at Carousels.org/LoanPolicy.
We have raised $54,000.00 for the fund but are aware that often more would be needed to protect an endangered historic carousel. We have the foundation for the project - it is now time to erect the "building."
If you are working with a group that is pursuing saving a carousel or moving one to their community, let us know! Jo Downey, chairperson of the Preservation Loan Fund Committee and an NCA Director, can be reached by email or by phone at 719-349-1346.
And, let's increase that fund! If each reader contributes $25 (or more) each year,
the fund will continue to grow. Checks should be made out to National Carousel Association
Loan Fund and sent to:
