Donate/Volunteer

Our all-volunteer mission has been to help preserve and define some of the most important items in American war history.

Donations are critical to this effort and your help will ensure the precious collections we care for remain accessible to all.

In addition to monetary donations, we always need volunteers willing to join us. Opportunities include:

  • Grounds and buildings maintenance
  • Staffing for daily operations and special events
  • Docents to help visitors navigate the grounds and understand the collections
  • Speakers for outreach to the community

Make your safe and secure online donation
with the online form on this page. 

All mailed donations should be sent to:
VNMS&M

P.O. Box 26
