The Founder’s Award is HSP’s premier annual fundraising event, and recognizes individuals and/or organizations for their contributions to history and the preservation of cultural heritage. 

This year we are honoring two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author David McCullough with the Founder's Award. The theme, "Philadelphia à Paris: Une fête historique," is inspired by Mr. McCullough new book The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris which tells the story of America's longstanding love affair with Paris. We will also honor Collin F. McNeil with the Heritage Award for his decades of support and for his leadership as former HSP Chairman of the Board.
