Support the Campaign to Build the Library

The Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association holds George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate in trust for the American people. A 501(c)(3) charitable organization, it does not receive taxpayer or government monies, but relies solely on the generosity of patriotic people. As this library will be paid for entirely with private donations, it will be the only presidential library funded with no government money.

We invite you to help realize George Washington’s dream to house his papers on his estate through support for the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington at Mount Vernon. This unique archival and educational facility will reach far beyond its walls through online documents and programs made available to millions around the world. Through this outreach, new generations will be introduced to the man who defines our national character.
