Preserving the past, shaping the future


Executive Director Christy Coleman speaks to donors.


Preserving the past, shaping the future
Your donation to the Annual Fund will play a vital role in showcasing our nation’s history at Jamestown Settlement and the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, including acquiring period artifacts for our galleries, supporting special exhibitions, sustaining living history programs, and delivering education programming that expand the borders of the classroom.

Our mission, your impact.
Our award-winning programs depend on generous contributions to our Annual Fund.  Last fiscal year, more than 3,000 donors collectively contributed $829,122 to support our museums’ most pressing needs.
