A Message from the Campaign Cabinet
We believe that the Commonwealth of Virginia and its diverse citizenry deserve a world-class history and culture museum. The Virginia Museum of History & Culture is that institution, and with your support, we are prepared to focus and expand our collections, exhibitions, and community programs to be of greater value and impact and secure our rightful place as a national leader in history education.
The Virginia Historical Society Board of Trustees recently issued a unanimous vote in favor of the History Matters Campaign. In addition, all members of our Board have made personal commitments toward our $35 million campaign goal.
Each generation of Virginians has its moment. We are in a pivotal point of reconciliation, exploration, and reflection as a community. It is only fitting that the VMHC play a leading role in sharing the dynamic and unfolding story of Virginia by becoming a venue that welcomes and reflects all citizens. This campaign will deepen our collections, provide the needed support to drive programmatic excellence, and serve all citizens who wish to connect with their own family history. It will position the VMHC for the next generation.
