The brainchild of passionate and generous long-time NPT supporters, Mary Helen and Michael Fabacher, Nantucket Preservation Trust’s Mary Helen and Michael Fabacher Scholarship Fund was established in 2012 to encourage and promote traditional building methods essential for the preservation of Nantucket’s historic architecture and to provide education opportunities to increase knowledge of these important crafts.

Designed to assist high school graduates looking to enter the construction field with the intention of returning to the island to practice their traditional building skills, or the island building trade person interested in perfecting old skills or in learning new ones, the Fund provides essential support to help students and tradespeople with the expenses incurred while accessing the hands-on training and education they need.
NPT is deeply grateful to the Fabacher family for their foresight, generosity and leadership. With new scholarships being considered annually, to date, the Mary Helen and Michael Fabacher Scholarship Fund has helped more than ten individuals to acquire the skills necessary to help preserve our historic structures.
