Give Local Piedmont

 We need your help  to improve and increase our current and future educational programs!

On Tuesday, May 14, the museum is participating in Give Local Piedmont, a community wide day of giving. Our goal this year is to raise $15,000 to help fund our educational programs for the coming year. That may seem ambitious, but we’ve raised over $10,000 annually through this event for the past FOUR years!

What makes Give Local Piedmont different? Why should you donate on this day rather than contribute at another time? Because through this event the museum is eligible for additional bonus funding and prize funds thanks to support from the PATH Foundation and other local sponsors! Each dollar you donate online on Tuesday, May 14 will be counted towards adding additional bonuses from these sources.

In addition, your gift can have the most funding if you schedule your online donation between noon and 1:00 PM on May 14. The institution with the largest number of unique donations is eligible for an additional $1000. Even if you are able to make only a small contribution you can help us win big this year!

Last year, we EXCEEDED our goal of $10,000 for the fourth year in a row! Will you help us repeat that success in 2024 by helping us meet our new goal of $15,000?

Every donation makes a difference, and your support helps to keep the museum alive and exciting!  Our preschooler program, Little Learners, is attracting 12-15 young learners every month, and we’ve started a new program in 2024 called Elementary Explorers.  We’ve also been holding a monthly lecture series and have opened five new exhibits in the past year! 

Your support has made possible:

  • ongoing monthly lectures
  • seasonal monthly walking tours of downtown Culpeper
  • walking tours, lectures, and exhibits supporting Virginia 250, the 250th anniversary commemoration of the American Revolution in Virginia
  • our monthly Little Learners and Elementary Explorers series for young learners
  • our Dino Dig Box in our Children’s Discovery Area
  • on demand tours of the museum for schools and tour groups
  • making the caboose available during downtown special programs and events

Did you know that more than half of our operating funds come from donations and contributions from you and our community? To be the best-small town community museum in Virginia, we need YOUR support!


Your donation will help fund our “wishlist” of new programs:

  • developing our new monthly interactive family program
  • developing tours of historic sites around Culpeper county
  • creating school education packets and in-class presentations
  • expanding and improving our children’s Discovery Zone
