Donor Events

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 and witnessed a cannon-firing demonstration from the Godspeed as it sailed on the James River during this special after-hours event.
