The Turks & Caicos Preservation Foundation Inc was founded as a Charitable Trust to raise funds to restore Government House and aid in preserving the historic district of Salt Cay. We invite you to visit Salt Cay to see what we are about. If you aren’t able to catch a plane, please take a moment to take the online tour entitled “Salt Cay Today“.

The small population on Salt Cay recognizes the importance of the history that surrounds them. The foundation applauds their continual hours of selfless volunteer labour to make the island the charming destination that it remains today. The TCPF desires to put a larger voice on this undertaking and generate some support from further resources to keep this national treasure alive.

Projects to be undertaken in the Salt Cay historic district include:

  • Restoration of Government House
  • Restore a typical salt raker home
  • Restoring a Salt Pond to produce salt
  • Plaques for all historic buildings
  • Donation wall plaque with all donator names enscribed

Donations, large or small are welcome. The foundation target is $650,000.

All donations made to the Foundation will go directly to pay for the restoration work without deductions of any kind. Every donation will be acknowledged permanently on a panel at Government House.

Checks should be made out to : The Turks and Caicos Preservation Foundation. Please include a printed donation form along with your check.
