Donors to the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation enjoy a special relationship with our museums. Throughout the year, the Foundation offers donors a variety of educational, cultural and social events, including private receptions during museum special events.

Picnic on the Pier The Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation held “Picnic on the Pier” at Jamestown Settlement on September 23, 2022, a special event to benefit museum education programs. Guests enjoyed the sunset on the beautiful Jamestown Settlement riverfront, savored a delicious personal charcuterie and dessert box from Lush Charcuterie, sipped on a selection of local beer from the Virginia Beer Company, and relaxed among period games and music of early Virginia. Guests also explored Jamestown Settlement’s flagship the Susan Constant during this special after-hours event.
