We made our $35,000 goal! Thank you to all of you!  We will keep this up through closing, and will be in contact with you on future developments. Please check our Facebook page,, for regular updates on the home!

DONATIONS ARE NOW TAX DEDUCTIBLE with the Architectural Heritage Center.

We hit two major milestones, delivered earnest money payments and again have negotiated a significantly reduced price!

In addition to the demolition delay, John McCulloch (McCulloch Construction) and Peter Kusyk have negotiated a reduced purchase of $635,000 -- and the gap the neighborhood campaign needs to raise is again greatly narrowed. The support of our community has made this happen! We have raised $20,000 and met two earnest money milestones. We have our final  payment of $15,000 due Oct. 22.

We have also secured a relationship with Portland's Architectural Heritage Center (AHC). We are pleased to welcome the Architectural Heritage Center as a partner in these efforts, because donations from here on out will be tax deductible!

Write your tax-deductible check to: Architectural Heritage Center (ID #94-3090169)

Mail to: Save the Markham Home, 3226 NE Glisan, Portland, OR 97232 . 100% of your contribution will go to saving the Markham Home.

You can also give here at the GoFundMe site (this is a convenient option, but please note fees are removed from your donation and all funds do not go to the campaign). You will receive confirmation of your donation either way.

You can help preserve part of Portland's history!
You can help avoid nearly 90,000 lbs going to the landfill!
You can make a valuable contribution to Portland's communities!
You can help bring attention to the demolition of historic homes!

Everyone who gives will be invited to a tour of the home, plus giving will be commemorated on location -- your efforts will be recognized.

100% of the funds raised will go towards filling the gap in the purchase price and we will let everyone know when that goal is met. Donations are tax-deductible and non-refundable and will be delivered to the AHC from the SMH campaign. If we are not successful in our campaign, all contributions will go to the AHC for preservation education and advocacy efforts.
