Make A Tax Deductible Donation

We appreciate donations of any size.  All donations are acknowledged every year in our annual report. You can make your donation by cash, check, credit card or Paypal.

Donate Your Time

At the Virginia Quilt Museum, we love our volunteers.  Volunteers are always needed to
support the Museum's mission of celebrating and nurturing Virginia's quilting heritage. Volunteers play a vital role in greeting our visitors by collecting admission fees, working in the Museum Shop, assisting with special events, guiding tours, leading
children’s activities, presenting at different organizations, and helping with the collection and exhibits. We need everyone's talents.  Contact the museum if you have time to spare.

Donate: In Memory or In Honor of Someone Special

 

Do you know someone who has impacted your life and had a love of quilting? Honor them with a special donation in their name. The Museum will track all donations made in a specific person’s name within a calendar year and when the donations reach $1,856 that person will be added to our 1856 Society and will be remembered forever.   Their name will be added to our beautiful plaque that is always on display at the Virginia Quilt Museum. In addition, they will be honored in our quarterly newsletter and on our website.

You can help the Virginia Quilt Museum and honor someone special at the same time!
