Today is 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. The budget year ends June 30th, and we need your help to end this year and start the next on a strong footing.
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.
Here are just a few examples of the impact history makes and how together, we're making a difference:
"I learned more than I thought possible. Visit the house and you won’t be disappointed." -Visitor to the John Marshall House
"Barn Preservation was my first Preservation Virginia webinar and it was fantastic! Because I do hands-on work, I was especially interested in the discussion of preserving historic materials. Overall this was a 10-star webinar for me even though I don’t live in your region. Thanks for facilitating an excellent experience!" -Participant from California in an online program
"It takes a great guide to transform what otherwise would be an enjoyable historical experience into a truly memorable one. That passion is remarkable." -Visitor to Patrick Henry's Scotchtown
Your gifts actively support advocacy for history on local, state and federal levels, educational programs for school students, online programs and the continued preservation of the six historic sites we operate in Virginia. Thank you for helping meet the challenge!
