We Need Your Help


Together, we can preserve this national treasure for generations to come

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation relies on grant funding and the generosity of individual charitable donations to fulfill our mission. Your contributions help Colonial Williamsburg, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, promote vital educational initiatives and cultivate informed citizenship—now and for future generations.

With your support, Colonial Williamsburg will continue to:

  • Preserve buildings, landscapes, trades, and skills that were critical at the time of Revolution
  • Engage history lovers of all ages by bringing the Historic Area to life through costumed interpretation
  • Curate world-class museum collections that illuminate life in colonial America
  • Work with educators from across the country to help them teach American history and foster citizenship in new ways
  • And, above all, continue to feed the human spirit by sharing America's enduring story

Thank you for believing in the importance of this American treasure and for investing in our nation’s history.
