TAX INFORMATION AND CHARITABLE ACCOUNTABILITY

View tax and financial information about the VHS.

YOU can help build our Nation’s future on the firm foundation of Virginia’s past. The VHS was established in 1831 to preserve the memory of Virginia’s role in founding American democracy. Today, we’re still helping Americans and people around the world learn the lessons of the past, longer than any other historical society in the South.

As a private institution with no state funding, we rely entirely on charitable contributions from supporters like you. Browse through our membership and giving options, then contact us with any questions.

You know our shared history. Now help ensure others know it, too, with additional gifts to preserve, collect, interpret, and share Virginia history now and for future generations.
