Our Foundation

Virginia Beach Historic Houses Foundation

The Virginia Beach Historic Houses Foundation was formed in 2013 to enhance the City-owned historic houses and sites by providing funding for historic artifacts and education programs and promoting public awareness of Virginia Beach history.

The Virginia Beach Historic Houses are cultural assets that are valued and supported by the community. The Foundation’s Board of Trustees are committed to historic architecture, authentic collections, inspiring landscapes, and stimulating program experiences for all audiences, and to maintaining the highest levels of professionalism and accreditation.

Give Online

Use your credit or debit card safely and easily by donating through PayPal. If you’d like your donation to go towards a specific program, or to make your gift in honor or in memory of someone, click on “Add special instructions” on the donation review page to specify. If you skip this step, your donation will go into the Foundation’s Annual Fund and remain unrestricted.

Note: Due to online handling fees, PayPal charges a 2.2% + $0.30 convenience fee for all online gifts. You may choose to cover the fee and add this to your donation. Otherwise, PayPal will deduct this from your gift. For example, if you give a $100.00 donation, you will be given credit for a $100.00 donation, but the Foundation will receive $97.50.
