Make your philanthropic gift through the Mount Vernon Preservation Challenge to help fund our most pressing projects and to support future preservation initiatives.
Preservation work never ends. Each year, the Mansion, outbuildings, and grounds are exposed to the extremes of weather and the wear put on them by more than one million visitors. Mount Vernon’s preservation team works hard to combat deterioration and to restore and preserve George Washington’s home to how it appeared during his life.
We have reached the point at which it is absolutely necessary to address immediate pressing concerns and to launch strategic projects that will protect these structures for the long term.
