Membership in the Virginia Historical Society

Since 1831, the VHS has been the steward of Virginia's treasures. As a private institution, not a state agency, the VHS depends on charitable contributions to fulfill its educational mission.

All Members Receive:

The Virginia Historical Society is proud to be recognized as a 4-star charity by Charity Navigator, America’s premier independent charity evaluator. Only the most fiscally responsible organizations receive the coveted 4-star designation. Of the fourteen charitable organizations in the Richmond area to receive this honor, VHS ranks first among arts and cultural institutions, and ranks fourth overall.

 

The VHS offers several different types of membership to meet your needs.
