Make your philanthropic gift through the Mount Vernon Preservation Challenge and it will go THREE times as far to help fund our most pressing projects and to support future preservation initiatives.

A very generous and passionate Mount Vernon supporter—Karen Buchwald Wright of Mount Vernon, Ohio—has once again issued the Mount Vernon Preservation Challenge and is offering to match every $1 you donate today with $2 of her own—all the way up to $1 million! Ms. Wright wants to make certain we can fund all of our high-priority preservation initiatives.

Donations will help fund vital projects that will protect George Washington's home now, and for many years to come.

Help Us Preserve Washington's Estate

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.

Our Most Pressing Projects:

Triple Your Gift Today

Your donation today will help us continue to preserve, restore, and maintain the home of George Washington so future generations can see Mount Vernon just as the Washington family and their visitors did.

As you consider your year-end philanthropic giving, we hope you will be as generous as you can in support of Mount Vernon. Remember, every $1 of support you send today will be matched by an additional $2, instantly tripling your impact to fund current and future preservation initiatives.

For your gift to be tripled, you must give by the end of the year. Thank you for considering a year-end gift to help preserve George Washington's home.
