Ten years ago, on a sunny Tuesday afternoon, a rare 5.8 magnitude earthquake rattled the eastern United States and caused $34 million in damage to Washington National Cathedral.
In the decade since Aug. 23, 2011, we’ve completed approximately $15 million in repairs, working from the inside out. This crown jewel of the D.C. skyline can only be fully restored as donations from people like you are raised to finish the work.
Learn more about the damage, the repairs and the work yet to be done and how you can be a part of returning this national treasure back to its original glory!
“No matter how large or small your gift is, we are going to be good stewards of your money. You’re giving to put this building back together, and it allows us to continue our craft to the highest levels, as good as those who came before us, so that our nation can enjoy the Cathedral for generations to come.” —Head Stone Mason Joe Alonso
