The Founders Committee is comprised of patriotic women from the National Capital area. Since 1980, their fundraising has supported a multitude of programs, projects, and publications furthering the Association’s mission to preserve Washington’s estate and educate the public about his legacy and virtues. Their ardent work has raised more than $3 million while adding inestimably to the Mount Vernon experience.

Membership in The Founders, Washington Committee is by invitation. To learn more, please contact the Development Department at 703-799-6881.
