When you give to The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, a private nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, you support our mission to feed the human spirit by sharing America’s enduring story. Since we are not state or federally funded, The Foundation relies on grant funding and the generosity of individual donors to fulfill that mission and safeguard this national treasure for generations to come.
