The 1772 Foundation is pleased to welcome its first program officer, Gillian Lang, who began working at the foundation this month. Gillian’s primary area of focus is the foundation’s grantmaking to historic properties redevelopment programs (HPRPs), also known as revolving funds.

Gillian comes to 1772 from Historic New England, where she was preservation services manager for the northern New England region. Her historic preservation experience also includes work for the National Trust for Scotland, Historic Boston Incorporated, the Providence Revolving Fund, and the Providence Preservation Society.

Gillian’s undergraduate degree is from Brown University. She earned her master’s degree in architectural conservation from the University of Edinburgh. Her dissertation title is The Revolving Fund Model in Scotland and the United States.

The 1772 Foundation’s hiring of a program officer reflects its increasing emphasis on HPRPs and their positive impact on community economic development and neighborhood revitalization.
