Annual Fund

The Annual Fund helps underwrite the daily operations of the VHS.  These include innovative educational programs, compelling lectures and exhibitions, long-standing research and publication initiatives, professional and web-based services, and the conservation and preservation of an incomparable collection—projects that help advance our mission and make the past accessible to everyone.

More information

As a private institution, not a state agency, the VHS depends on charitable contributions to fulfill its educational mission.                                

The VHS is the oldest, continuously operating cultural institutions in the state and one of the oldest historical societies in the country.

In 2004, the Virginia General Assembly formally designated the VHS as the Official State Historical Society, recognizing it for its “special commitment to the Commonwealth’s schoolteachers and their students,” its stewardship of collections, and its ongoing development of comprehensive programs.

The VHS also is the only southern member of the Independent Research Libraries Association.

The VHS recently received reaccreditation by the American Association of Museums—the highest national recognition for a museum and a designation only awarded to one in ten museums in the country. This status signifies excellence to the museum community, funders, outside agencies, governments, and to the museum-going public.

Help us remain one of America's premier historical organizations by making your Annual Fund gift online today; or by sending your tax-deductible gift to the attention of Cathy Boe at the address below.
