Private philanthropy provides for the ongoing preservation of James and Dolley’s home, archaeological research to understand and interpret the enslaved community, and civic education for today and tomorrow’s leaders.
As a partner in our mission, support from donors like you helps Montpelier bring to life the character of one of our most indispensable founders. Your gift honors James and Dolley Madison and shares their legacy with the nation and the world.  
The idea of the United States started here, with James Madison at Montpelier, and we invite you to join us in charting its future.
The Montpelier Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and your charitable gift is fully eligible for tax deductions.
