Adopt Virginia's History

The story of Virginia—from the time of its beginnings as a colony to the present day—is documented here at the Library of Virginia. The Adopt Virginia's History program supports our conservation and collection management efforts, helping the Library preserve and document our state’s collective memory.

We welcome donations to our general conservation and management fund. You can be proud of your contribution to this important cause, which is tax deductible. We will acknowledge your generous adoption or contribution with a certificate. When you adopt a project, your gift will be noted in our online catalog record, and you will be invited to come and see your work upon completion.

The Adopt Virginia's History program relies on your support to fulfill its mission and programming in the preservation of our state’s history. For more information about the Adopt Virginia's History program, please contact Elaine McFadden, Assistant Director of Development of the Library of Virginia Foundation, at 804-692-3592 or
