Ways to Give

When you give to The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, you support our mission: That the future may learn from the past.

The Foundation is a private organization that does not receive federal or state funding. We operate based on grants and the generosity of individual donors to safeguard the world’s largest American living history museum for generations to come.

On behalf of everyone at The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, thank you for your support.
