MADISON, Wis. - Friends of the Meeting House with the First Unitarian Society of Madison are launching a crowdfunding campaign Friday to help restore the Unitarian Meeting House.
The Unitarian Meeting House was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and is a National Historical Landmark in Madison.
According to a release, the building was listed as one of 17 Wright-designed buildings that should be preserved in its original configuration by the American Institute of Architects in 1960.
The release said the Unitarian Meeting House needs repairs to the trusses under the copper roof and the auditorium prow.
Partial funding of $1.35 million was acquired through grants from the Evjue Foundation and the Pleasant Rowland Foundation and funds donated by members of the First Unitarian Society of Madison.
The crowdfunding campaign, "Wright the Roof," is launching on Indiegogo Friday and will end July 31.
The campaign aims to raise $25,000 of the $750,000 needed to reach the $2.1 million goal.
