Purpose and Activities

Giving for the field of historic preservation through financial support and leadership.


Established in 1986 in NC - Marion Stedman Covington was born and raised in Asheboro, North Carolina, where her father was a textile manufacturer and founder of the Stedman Corporation. She attended Greensboro College and Duke University before spending her professional career employed in the family business. She spent most of her life in North Carolina, and it is in this area that she focused her generosity. Mrs. Covington’s interests included art, education and the well being of others. She established the foundation in 1986. For the first twenty years of its history the foundation provided funding in arts and culture, education, health and human services and historic preservation. As of 2007, the foundation has chosen to reflect Mrs. Covington’s value of a love of history and regional heritage by narrowing the focus to historic preservation
