Mount Vernon has stood proudly since George Washington’s death in 1799 as a singularly timeless representation of our nation’s early history and our freedom. When the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association rescued this iconic place, it also ensured that, along with his home, the legacy of George Washington would survive.
As we look to the future, and particularly, to the 250th anniversary of our nation’s founding, the continued tireless application of expert preservation practices, visionary educational efforts, and increased financial resources will ensure that Mount Vernon remains a cornerstone of our national story.
The challenges facing Mount Vernon and the country today are no different than those Washington faced during his lifetime. Please join us in this $150-million Campaign for Mount Vernon to strengthen the foundations of the key elements of the estate including preservation initiatives, educational endeavors, and our endowment.
