Members of Colonial Williamsburg's donor societies aid us in preserving the heritage of eighteenth-century Williamsburg and play a leading role in perpetuating the restored city, which was a training ground for a remarkable group of our country's founders.
Gifts from members of the donor societies help the Foundation achieve its mission to preserve the historic buildings of the colonial capital and to inspire and inform visitors about its role in the founding of our democratic republic and citizen responsibilities for maintaining it. Your support is vitally important to preserving our past and securing our future. The future of Colonial Williamsburg depends upon your support.
In addition to receiving our quarterly history magazine Trend & Tradition and a 24-karat gold-finished collectible ornament, donors of $250 or more receive special benefits, including access to the St. George Tucker House Donor Reception Center.
