Purpose

As a significant portion of our mission is to grow funds that enable the Virginia Society to support and expand its scope of patriotic activities. The Patriots Fund augments our operating budget and allows organizations become beneficiaries as approved by the Officers and Board of Managers.

From marking gravesites, to erecting monuments, to preservation of historic places and antiquities, some of our contributions through the years have included:
