Membership and Annual Fund

The Rockbridge Historical Society, one of the oldest and largest county history organizations in Virginia, invites you to become a Contributing Member through contributions to our Annual Fund, or by joining as Family or Corporate Members.

RHS receives income from membership dues, gifts from our supporters, grants and corporate sponsorships, and from rent on the historic buildings we own and preserve.  These resources help sustain our financial stability, which we have maintained by not assuming any debt, and by annually projected balanced budgets.  The Annual Fund is a crucial means to help meet all our operating costs. And your contributions will help to build new capacities to fund the programs, publications, and museum exhibits that we seek to grow in expanding our community outreach and mission in lifelong education.

Please consider donating online below, or by mailing checks to our address (at bottom).  And do please contact us in regards to any matching gift opportunities you may have from employers or other philanthropic foundations.
