On June 23rd, Double Your Donation Day, gifts up to $8,500 will be matched by generous patrons who are passionate about preservation. Any gift made online, by mail or over the phone will be doubled by the match. Please make a matching gift and help finish the fiscal year in a strong financial position. As we emerge and learn from the challenges of the last year, the next few months are absolutely critical. Upcoming projects include:
  • Replacing the roof at Patrick Henry's Scotchtown and painting the exterior of the building.
  • Continuing outreach and advocacy on behalf of this year's Virginia's Most Endangered Historic Places. The fight to preserve these locations continues.
  • Producing webinars and online programs even as in-person events resume. 
  • Offering field trips and virtual learning opportunities for schools.
We are not a state agency and rely on the support of our friends and supporters to make these projects and programs happen. To say thanks, any donation over $60 comes with a one-year membership to Preservation Virginia, which includes free or discounted admission to all six historic sites we steward and open to the public. From Cape Henry Lighthouse in Virginia Beach to Patrick Henry's Scotchtown in Hanover County, membership to Preservation Virginia provides so much to see and do this summer and all year. 

Thank you so very much in advance for your interest and support. Together, we'll continue helping preserve the places and stories that make communities in Virginia unique.

And Don't Miss Thursday's Online Program

Historic preservation and natural resource conservation have a lot in common. Here in Virginia, the Great Dismal Swamp is one of the most unique ecological landscapes on the U.S. East Coast and is home to an incredibly rich number of Virginia Indian and African American cultural and historical sites. This webinar will explore ways that the preservation and conservation movements connect to save important places and the stories they tell.

In addition to Congressman McEachin, speakers include Nikki Bass, Nansemond Indian Nation; Chris Lowie, Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge; Eric Shepherd, Association for the Study of African American Life & History; Elizabeth Vehmeyer, the National Park Service; Trip Pollard, Preservation Virginia Board of Trustees; Jennifer Hurst-Wender, Preservation Virginia; and Sonja Ingram, Preservation Virginia.
